Strawberry Carrots??


StrawberriesYes, Pinterest has struck again. Seriously I don’t know what I ever did before Pinterest!!  I thought these were so adorable and I had company for dinner last night so I thought I’d whip them up.  I just happened to have some orange “Wilton Candy Melts” (purchase at Michaels or Joanne’s) so I picked up some strawberries at the grocery store.  I like to use the stove-top for the melting process.  I use a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water.

Just add 1 cup of candy melts to glass bowl, bring pot to a boil then turn down to medium.  Once they get fairly melted, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (1 TBLS of oil to every cup of candy melts).  This will keep the candy silky and shiny. When completed melted remove from heat.  I inserted a skewer into the green top, easier to hold.  Then you can dip & roll the strawberries or use a spoon and pour over them.  Let them cool on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.  Once cooled you can drizzle extra over the tops – pretty cute. There suppose to look like carrots – think I will do these again for Easter.

One cup of candy melts w/oil will cover about 12 strawberries.
