Equipment

Ingredients

  • 12 large Strawberries
  • 1/4 cup neon green candy melts
  • 1/4 cup white candy melts
  • 2-3 tablespoons black candy melts
  • Coconut oil or vegetable oil   optional

Instructions

  • Wash the strawberries and thoroughly pat dry with paper towels. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Using 3 small bowls, melt the candy melts according to package instructions. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate. Stir the chocolate to make sure no lumps remain.
  • *Tip - adding a small amount of coconut oil or vegetable oil to the candy melts will help thin out thick chocolate.

For the Mummy Berries:

  • Dip each berry in the white candy coating. Let sit on parchment paper lined tray for 10-15 minutes or until set.
  • Add remaining white candy to a piping bag or ziplock bag and cut a small hole in the tip.
  • Create lines back and forth and diagonally across the chocolate coated berry.
  • Pipe on eyes with black chocolate.
  • Allow to set on parchment lined tray for 5-7 minutes, until chocolate has hardened.

For the Spider Berries:

  • Dip each berry in the neon green candy coating. Let sit on parchment paper lined tray for 10-15 minutes or until set.
  • Using the black chocolate, pipe a large triangle on the chocolate covered strawberry. Then pipe vertical lines inside the triangle, followed by horizontal lines between the spaces left on the vertical lines to make the spider web.
  • Allow to set on parchment lined tray for 5-7 minutes, until chocolate has hardened.

Notes

  • Change up the colors and patterns for other holidays and celebrations.
  • Berries can be made a day ahead of time. Store uncovered in the refrigerator for 1-2 days.
  • Optional ingredients are not included in Nutritional Information.
