Easter is right around the corner and you know that I’m all about getting into the seasonal spirit! Chocolate dipped strawberries don’t have to just be for Valentine’s Day – here is a fun way to turn them into a spring treat that the whole family will have fun preparing and devouring!
Easter Carrot Strawberries
- 1 pint Strawberries, fresh
- 1 pkg. White Candy Melts (white chocolate is fine too)
- 1 Tablespoon Shortening (or substitute with vegetable oil)
- Red and Yellow Food Coloring
In a small bowl, melt the white candy melts and shortening together and stir until smooth. Add in a few drops of red and yellow food coloring to make an orange color.
Wash the fresh strawberries and dry them well. Place a piece of waxed paper on the counter top to set the berries on after dipping. Dip each strawberry into the orange candy mixture and use a spoon to make sure it’s well coated (but do not coat the leaf end). Place each berry onto the waxed paper and let it dry completely before serving.
