Total Time: 60 minutes
What you need:
- Wilton's Candy Melts (orange, brown)
- Can be found at local craft stores, Michaels, Party City, etc...
- Fresh strawberries
- Piping or Ziploc bag
- Large sheet pan
- Wax paper
In a glass bowl, melt the orange candy melts in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Take the bowl out, and stir until the mixture is smooth.
One by one, dip the strawberries into the mixture while holding the leaf of the strawberry. Place the dipped strawberries on a large sheetpan lined with wax paper.
After you finish dipping the strawberries in orange, melt a few brown tablets in the microwave, the same way you did with the orange ones. Fill a piping bag (or ziploc bag) with the mixture, cut a small hole in the corner of the bag, and start piping thin lines to resemble a basketball.
Let strawberries harden for about 30-45 minutes before serving.
