You Will Need:

mid size skewers (preferably decorated ones like this pearl handle)
fresh strawberries
good quality pink, red, and white baking chocolate (it's important not to skimp on money here and get the best quality brand- otherwise the chocolate will clump)
tiny edible pearls
pink, white and red edible glitter spray
pink, white and red edible tiny sugar crystals


In 3 separate microwave-safe bowls, add the 3 colors respectively in broken chunks. Microwave on high for short intervals, about 30 seconds, and stir well. After about a minute or two, depending on the chocolate, the consistency will be right. DO NOT OVERHEAT AS THIS WILL CAUSE CLUMPING. I had some difficulty with my white chocolate as it was too runny, but the hot pink was too thick. So, I ended up mixing the 2 shades to get the perfect texture. Meanwhile, wash the strawberries and pat dry with a paper towel. Add the skewers to each top. Test one strawberry in your chocolate mixture to see if the consistency is right. If not, adjust accordingly. Using your skewer, slowly and lightly swirl the strawberry over the top of the chocolate bowl. Allow the excess to drip back, and then quickly place on a prepared baking sheet. Before it hardens, add your choice of decorations. Repeat with the rest and have fun creating different designs!
