My first thought is in order to decrypt the encrypted traffic, capture the ssl handshake 1st as a part of the traffic. ssl.record.content_type == 22 will show the handshake packets. If the handshake is successful and present, use the "Decrypted SSL data" tab which should be present at the bottom of the packet pane to display decrypted traffic.

Hope this is helpful, John
