- 1 pound Florida strawberries
- 2 cups orange candy melts or white chocolate wafers and orange food coloring
- Wash, drain, and pat your strawberries down with paper towels.
- Melt your orange candy melts. You can do this easily in the microwave using a microwave-safe bowl, preferably wide and with tall sides. Heat the chocolate for 15 seconds at a time, and then stir. Repeat as necessary until the chocolate has melted.
- Pour some of the melted chocolate into a small plastic bag, twisting the top to push it into a corner of the bag. Pierce the tip of the bag with a skewer, and set aside for now.
- Skewer your strawberries, and then dip them in the chocolate. Swirl the strawberries in the chocolate just below their green tops to cover them completely.
- Using the plastic bag with chocolate in it, decorate each of your chocolate dipped strawberries with lines.
- Refrigerate for approximately 15 minutes until the chocolate is set.
- Enjoy your chocolate covered carrot strawberries!
