6 of each flavorJOLLY RANCHER Original Hard Candies in Blue Raspberry and Watermelon
4 cupsfresh strawberries (2 pt.)
2 cupsHERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate Chips (11.5-oz. pkg.)
2 tablespoonsshortening (do not use butter, margarine, spread or oil), divided
2 cupsHERSHEY'S Premier White Creme Chips (12-oz. pkg.)
Gel food color in desired colors (optional)

Directions

  • 1. Remove wrappers from hard candies. Chop each flavor in small food processor or place in heavy-duty (freezer) food storage bag and crush with rolling pin to desired coarseness. Smaller pieces will soften into coating. Keep in airtight container until ready to use.
  •  
  • 2. Rinse and pat dry strawberries. If not dipping right away, store covered with plastic wrap to keep leaves from drying out in refrigerator until ready to dip.
  •  
  • 3. Line tray or cookie sheet with wax paper. Place milk chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred.
  •  
  • 4. Holding by top of strawberry, dip 2/3 of each strawberry into melted chocolate; shake gently to remove excess. Place on prepared tray; refrigerate until coating is firm, at least 30 minutes.
  •  
  • 5. Repeat microwave procedure with white creme chips and remaining tablespoon shortening in clean microwave-safe bowl. (Tint melted chips, if desired.) At an angle, dip lower 1/3 of each berry into white mixture. Allow to firm slightly. Re-dip tip of strawberry and immediately sprinkle with crushed candies. Return to tray. Drizzle remaining white creme chip mixture over coated strawberries, if desired. (Microwave melted chips about 5 seconds at MEDIUM if they become too firm to dip or drizzle.) Refrigerate until ready to serve. Strawberries are best if made no more than 24 hours ahead. Makes 2 to 3 dozen berries.
