Frighten your friends with our scary berry mummies!
18 large California Giant strawberries
6 ounces marzipan
6 ounces Scharffen Berger 72% Signature Dark Chocolate (2 bars)
Wash and dry berries thoroughly. Set aside.
Melt chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a small saucepan with about an inch of simmering water.
Remove bowl from heat and dip berries to cover. Gently shake off excess chocolate and place dipped berries on a parchment lines baking sheet. Allow to cool/harden completely before proceeding.
Roll marzipan into a sheet about ⅛ inch in thickness. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut long strips of marzipan about ¼ inch wide. Use confectioners’ sugar as needed to keep the marzipan from sticking to the counter. Lay lightly moistened paper towels over the marzipan strips until ready to apply.
Use the marzipan strips to wrap around the dipped berries like bandages, leaving a space near the top of the berry for eyes.
Break off two small pieces of marzipan and roll into two balls between your palms. Press these into the space on the mummy face for eyes.
