Directions: 

  • Melt some orange coloured white-chocolate drops found at any cake decorating store. If you don’t have any access to orange colored white-chocolate drops, melt white chocolate chips in a bowl and add a few drops of red and yellow food colouring until you get the desired colour.

  • Dip the strawberries in the chocolate and place them on a wax sheet of paper.

  • With a teaspoon or a skewer, drizzle excess chocolate over the strawberries to create carrot ridges.

  • Allow the chocolate to harden before eating.
