Ingredients

1 1/2 cups orange candy melts

1 teaspoon coconut oil

18 to 24 medium to large strawberries, rinsed and dried well

Chocolate sprinkles, for serving

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the candy melts in a small deep microwave-safe bowl or glass measuring cup and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring, until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in the coconut oil until smooth.
  2. Dip the strawberries in the melted candy and swirl until fully coated. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. When all the strawberries are coated, drizzle some of the remaining melted candy back and forth across the strawberries with a spoon to make horizontal lines. Set aside in a cool place until the candy sets, about 1 hour.
  3. Peel the candy-coated strawberries off the paper and trim any uneven edges. Serve on a bed of chocolate sprinkles.

Cook’s Note

Make these the same day you plan to serve them-the candy coating won't hold up overnight.
