  • 2 bags of candy melts I used dark chocolate and white
  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries
  • few drops of cooking oil


  • Wash strawberries, cut off stems and dry with a paper towel.
  • Melt half the bag of candy melts in a glass bowl or measuring cup (according to directions on package).
  • If necessary, stir a few drops of oil into the chocolate to make a bit thinner.
  • Using a toothpick (or even your fingers) dip strawberry into chocolate and lay top down on wax covered cookie sheet.
  • Once first layer is set melt second color like the first and use a fork to drag through chocolate and onto strawberries.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Do not overcook chocolate. I melted in microwave for 1 minute then stirred and continued at 30 second intervals alternating with stirring. Adding a few drops of oii will help the dipping process.
If preferred leave the stems on and dip from the bottom up.
