Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Footballs

These fun, football-shaped chocolate confections are the perfect healthy dessert option to bring to your next tailgate.

Strawberries are filled with polyphenols, a healthy antioxidant. They also are known to help lower blood pressure and are free of sodium, cholesterol and fat. Adding dark chocolate to the mix gives the recipe some added antioxidants, as well as some soluble fiber. Dark chocolate also can help lower blood pressure.

This football-shaped treat will be a guaranteed touchdown at whatever tailgate you attend.
