I'm making a cake for my friend for her college graduation. Her favorite color scheme is brown and teal. I was wondering if anyone has ever used colored candy melts to dip strawberries? I was thinking of doing a two tiered round, covered in choc buttercream, then topped with chocolate strawberries. I want to incorporate the teal in it somehow, and i was thinking maybe on the strawberries themselves??

Make sure your berries are VERY dry before dipping them in chocolate.

I am not sure if this would mess up the chocolate but my thought is to make tuxedo strawberries, but add a twist by adding teal coloring to the white chocolate so the shirt underneath is teal.

That was one of the first things I ever did with candy melts! All we did was, after washing the strawberries, dry them on paper towels until they were nice and dry. Then we dipped and hardened on waxed paper. ....the ones that didn't go straight into Mom's mouth, that is!

We used milk chocolate but the colors are just the same, if you can get teal go for it.

Another idea, dip them in your milk and white chocolates adn decorate them with teal candy melts. I love choco strawberries!!!
