Strawberries are coated with melted pink candy melts and then decorated with dark chocolate and white chocolate. 


  • 15 strawberries

  • ½ cup pink candy melts

  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips or 150 g/5 oz dark chocolate bar

  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips or 150 g/5 oz white chocolate bar 

  • ½ teaspoon vegetable oil (optional, please read the note 2)


  1. Pick firm strawberries, rinse well and then dry each very well using a paper towel.


  1. Dry the strawberries as much as possible.
  2. Candy melts are supposed to be smooth when melted, but if yours doesn’t get as smooth as desired, add in ½ teaspoon vegetable oil or another shortening and stir well.
  3. To melt candy melts in a microwave: Pour pink candy melts into a microwave safe bowl. Heat the candy melts in the microwave for 1 minute at about 40% power, take out and stir well with a rubber spatula. Put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Take it out, add in ½ teaspoon vegetable oil and stir again until smooth. If it is still thick, put it back for another 20 seconds but not longer than this. Repeat this until it completely melts. 
  4. If you can’t find pink candy melts, melt white chocolate and mix it with red or pink food coloring. Add the coloring gradually until you are satisfied with the color.
  5. If your strawberries don’t have leaves on them, use the toothpick method. Insert a toothpick on top of strawberries, hold it as a handle and dip strawberries into melted chocolate.
  6. If melted chocolate thickens as you are working, don’t worry. You can reheat the melted pink candy melts, dark chocolate and white chocolate in their own bowl over the saucepan filled with hot water.
  7. We don’t recommend freezing chocolate covered strawberries.
