Scary Berry jack O'lanterns


  • 18 large California Giant strawberries
  • 8 ounces nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • powdered orange food coloring as desired
  • 2 ounces Scharffen Berger 72% Signature Dark Chocolate (1 bar)


      • Place the Greek yogurt in cheesecloth and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Place the cheesecloth and yogurt in a small colander and place in the refrigerator overnight on a shallow dish to drain more liquid.
      • Wash and dry berries thoroughly. Set aside.
      • Add yogurt, sugar, vanilla, and butter to a medium mixing bowl and beat until very smooth (about 3 minutes). Add powdered food color and beat until well combined. Check for color and add more as necessary.
      • Dip berries in the yogurt dip and place on a parchment lined baking sheet to cool/harden.
      • Melt chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a small saucepan with about an inch of simmering water. Pour the chocolate into a plastic piping bag or make one from parchment paper rolled into a cone with a tiny tip cut off.
      • Use the small tipped piping bag to draw a jack o’lantern face on the dipped berries with chocolate. Allow to cool/harden completely before serving.
