I want to make chocolate dipped strawberries dipped in white. Then dipped in edible glitter or dust to make it shiny and later drizzle white chocolate.


Has anyone ever made it? Any tips will help.

You can dry paint chocolate with FDA approved luster dusts (Crystal Colors is the only company that makes them)

The only edible glitter is cake sparkles (Wilton makes them). They're gum arabic and can be ground smaller in a tea strainer. Can't get them wet--they melt--but if you put them on chocolate that isn't quite set up, they should do fine.

The disco/pixie dusts aren't edible--they're finely ground plastic and some have aluminum in them.

Luster dust or Pearl Fondant glaze. You can find both at Fondantsource. I love the pearl glaze because you can add gel food colors and it doesn't take much to color. Paint on wait 30 minutes and you can paint again until desired color.
