  1. White Chocolate Chips: You could substitute with orange candy melts
  2. Vegetable Oil or Coconut Oil: This helps to thin out the white chocolate chips a bit for a smoother finish
  3. Red and Yellow Food Coloring: Mix to make the perfect orange food coloring
  4. Strawberries: Make sure they are fresh strawberries, washed and completely dry. Look for large, firm juicy strawberries
  5. Chocolate Sprinkles: These are optional but give your carrots the appearance of being plucked from the ground

How to Make This Recipe

Step One: Melt the Chocolate

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Set aside. 

Place the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and add the vegetable oil into the bowl. 

Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl, stir, then microwave again for another 30 seconds. Repeat this in 30 second increments until the white chocolate chips or orange chocolate melts are totally melted (it usually takes me 3 rounds). 

Put equal drops of red and yellow food coloring into the white chocolate chips and stir, adding more coloring until your desired orange color is achieved. 

Step Two: Dip the Strawberries

Grab the strawberries lightly by the green portion and dip strawberries in the melted chocolate.

After dipping, allow each strawberry to drip any excess chocolate off. and then place the strawberries on the wax paper. 

Step Three: Decorate and Serve

Pour the extra white chocolate into a small sandwich-size ziploc bag, then use scissors to cut off a teeny corner of the bag. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the coated strawberries to make the signature carrot lines. 

Place the tray in the fridge and allow the strawberries to chill for 10 minutes. 

Pour the chocolate sprinkles into a shallow bowl, then nestle the chocolate-covered strawberries amongst the sprinkles to look like carrots in a carrot patch. 

Serve and enjoy this festive treat! 

Expert Tips

  • Make sure you use dry strawberries before you begin or you may get frustrated trying to make the chocolate stick!
  • Keep a hot pad under your bowl while you dip your strawberries to keep your melted candy soft and smooth.
  • If you often run into the problem of your white chocolate getting too hot and becoming stiff and unusable, try reducing your microwave’s power by about 50%. It may take longer to melt, but it is better than getting too hot, too fast.
  • If you have a double boiler, you can absolutely use the double boiler method to melt your chocolate and keep it melted while you dip.

How to Store

These adorable little Carrot Chocolate Covered Strawberries are best enjoyed the same day you dip them, but you could keep them in the refrigerator for up to three days. I recommend placing them on a plate with a paper towel to help soak up any excess moisture the strawberries may leak.

I would not recommend freezing chocolate dipped strawberries.
