Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pumpkin Patch
This cute little pumpkin patch dessert is made entirely from chocolate-covered strawberries. Fresh berries dipped in festive chocolate served on a bed of gluten-free cookie crumbs are sure to be a halloween party hit!
Servings: 1 pint strawberries
- 1 pint fresh strawberries medium-sized
- 2-3 cups orange candy melts
- 2 tablespoon coconut oil
- ⅔ package crushed gluten-free sandwich cookies optional, for serving
Thoroughly wash and dry the strawberries.
Place the candy melts and coconut oil into a heat-safe measuring cup or short glass. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between. Be careful that the candy melts don't overheat or they will seize. If this happens, just let them cool down before continuing.
Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Insert a toothpick into the top of each strawberry. This makes it very easy to hold and dip cleanly.
Dip the strawberries into the chocolate and allow to rest on the cookie sheet. Place into the fridge for 10 minutes to solidify. If the chocolate looks thin, another coat might be necessary.
Once the base is coated, place the remaining chocolate into a ziplock bag (or piping bag) with a very small hole. Draw vertical lines across the strawberries. Chill for another 10 minutes.
Serve on a bed of crushed gluten-free sandwich cookies. Best served the day prepared. Enjoy!
