Strawberries Balls for The Super Bowl


IMG_4522

What type of food are you offering your guests for Super bowl??? Well, if I were hosting, I would be making all kinds of food… But I am not. We will be joining some friends of ours. So Guess what??? I will only be making a few things. Mini Pretzels, Mustard, Ham and Cheese Pretzels Bites and Chocolate Covered Strawberries.

I will be posting those recipes very soon. But today I am just going to share with you the easiest of all desserts: Chocolate Covered Strawberries.

All you need is good quality Chocolate, and fresh strawberries.

Ingredients for 1 box of chocolate or about 30 strawberries:

  • 1 box of strawberries
  • 6 oz. of bittersweet chocolate from Ghiradhelli
  • 1 0z of white chocolate

I love the Ghiradhelli Chocolate because it is the ONLY chocolate that will melt perfectly to a liquid form in the microwave so Do not use Hershey, or Nestlé. The chocolate will not melt unless you add butter.

  1. Place the chocolate chips in a small bowl. Place the chocolate chips in the microwave for 90 seconds. Stir and place it back into the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds if needed.
  2. Take one strawberry at a time, and dip it in the chocolate. Place the chocolate onto a large silpat that you would have previously placed on a perforated sheet for support. Repeat until it is done.IMG_4471
  3. Place the strawberries into the fridge to cool. When the chocolate has settled.
  4. Place the white chocolate into a small container and melt it the microwave for a few seconds ( 30 seconds). It should soft to the fingers. IMG_4532
  5. Pour the melted chocolate into a small plastic bag. Push the chocolate to the end of the plastic bag.IMG_4533
  6. Cut the tip and draw lines on the strawberries to make it look like the football.IMG_4473
  7. Place the strawberries back into the fridge to cool. Et voila!!!IMG_4519

Super Bowl Cookie Cake


photo

This past Friday I gave a cooking party for a group of fun young ladies. We had lots of fun! and they loved the cookware and the recipes.

At the end of the class, the host inquired about making a cookie cake.  She needed to make one for her son’s birthday. I will tell you that it is not something that i have never thought of making because my children really never asked for it. But i told her that the best way would be to use a grande round mold, or even the flexipat to make a rectangular size cake because the cookie will not stick and it will be perfect. Look!!!

So Luci, thank you for the idea, and for inviting my daughter and I to try to make one. I hope that you were able to make one for your child’s birthday.

Since it is still early in the afternoon, you guys maybe able to make one right before your party starts:-)

Of course, I could have made it all from scratch, but many of you, I am sure will welcome the short and quick version so here it is:

Ingredients for large cookie cake of 14x 10 inches:

  • 1 box of nestle cookie dough
  • 1 can of green icing.
  • 1 can of brown icing
  • 1 can of white icing
  • 1 box of cake decorating box

  1. Turn the oven to 325.
  2. Empty the content of the cookie dough on the roulpat.
  3. Place a small roulpat on top of the dough since it will be very sticky.

  5. With a rolling pin, roll the dough out to make a rectangular that will fit the flexipan.photo
  6. Place the flexipat on top of the cookie, and  flip the roulpat so that the cookie will be in the pan.photophoto
  7. Cook the cookie for 13-15 minutes ( depending how you like your cookies- I like mine soft so i cook the cake for 13 minutes).
  8. Let the cake cool completely.
  9. Decorate as you wish.

We made some cookies in the shape of cookie helmets and footballs to place on top of the cake and bake them also for 13 minutes.
