It's easy to accent dipped candy with fun toppings. Immediately after dipping, roll the candy in your favorite topping and refrigerate. Chopped nuts, Wilton Sprinkles and Nonpareils, shredded coconut or cocoa powder are delicious choices.
Prepare treats to be dipped, if necessary. Most fruits should be washed and dried before dipping. If using pieces of bananas or apples, dip them first into lemon juice to prevent discoloration and allow to dry. In a bowl, melt desired amount of Candy Melts® following package directions.
Hold strawberries and cherries by stems to dip in candy. For other fruit, pretzels and small cookies, use a fork or spoon from the candy dipping set.
Place treats on cookie sheet covered with waxed or parchment paper. Refrigerate until firm.

If you want to make these for any occasion, you have to make them the same day. Make sure to allow the fruit to dry after washing. After dipping, let them set at cool room temperature and you can leave them at room temp for a few hours before serving. DO NOT refrigerate or the chocolate will have condensation on it when it reaches room temperature during serving.

Chocolate covered strawberries are my absolute favorite treat. I followed the directions that Wilton listed and they came out perfectly. Now instead of buying them from an upscale bakery for $3 each I can enjoy many more for way less!
