At a glance
Approx 2.5 hours (including refrigeration time)
Makes approx 25 strawberries
500g fresh strawberries
1 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
Gel food coloring (this recipe calls for 5 colours, but this can be easily adapted to what you have in the cupboard)
Sprinkles, edible glitter or other decorations
Milk or dark chocolate chips
Wash strawberries and ensure they are completely dry before starting.
Line a baking sheet with baking paper for easy clean-up. Get a small bowl out for each color of chocolate you plan on using
If using 5 colours, add 1/3 cup of white chocolate chips to each bowl. Working with one bowl at a time, microwave it in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is fully melted. Stir in a couple of drops of olive oil and a drop or two of food coloring. Adjust color as needed. Dip the strawberry and turn it in the chocolate until it’s evenly covered.
Place the strawberry on the baking sheet and be careful not to move it. Repeat for each strawberry that you want to be that color. Each colour should cover 5 or 6 strawberries.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 with each color.
Once all the strawberries are covered in chocolate, add sprinkles, edible glitter.
For more decoration, melt milk or dark chocolate chips in a separate small bowl (the same way as the white chocolate) and pipe on top of the dipped strawberry.
Place the baking sheet in the fridge and let the strawberries set for 2 hours. Once they strawberries are set, put them in an airtight container and they should keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
