Ok, @MarvelGirl25, making these were NOT as easy as I thought they would be!!!

First, I more like painted the chocolate on vs dipped (way to messy...ended up eating and licking all the delicious drips, though lol) Also ended up holding a strawberry in each hand over and over for like 5 mins so it would dry enough to put in wax paper without the coating sliding off. And my cheap toothpicks kept breaking!!! Multiply that by 30 strawberries and that equals what felt like forever!!! I wonder what I was doing wrong...arg.

Lastly, all the cool luster dust colours were out of stock at my local store so I only picked up Pearl and Bronze, which doesn’t nearly come out as nice (can barely tell I put any on, honestly!!!)

Anyway, I am forbidding the family from eating them at the moment because I need the hard evidence of my blood, sweat and tears to exist a little longer.

I may try this again another day. Maybe.

Your blood, sweat and tears duly noted! They still look scrumptious, and I can see the pearlized accents. I certainly think you deserve an A+ for such heroic enthusiastic efforts. The texture, color and variety awesomely delish. And, you sparkle even if the strawberries don't. ;]

Ah yes, if you paint the chocolate on it wont look as smooth vs dipping them. And after I dip them I place them immediately on the wax paper even wet. At first I thought the same as you, that the chocolate would come off on the back, but it doesn't.

But I agree with everything @Sophie7713 said! These look absolutely delicious and I love the nut topping you used! These would go quick in my house! Maybe next time I make them I can make you a tiny demo vid of how I dip them? :) Amazing job regardless!!!

The spreads look so good! What are these, and the others you have posted while on vacation? The apricots must taste heavenly...

dinner tonight. Wedge salad. pizza cracker. Partial pork chop. Sautéd yellow squash. Wedge salad leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Often make more salad than I can eat in a meal since they can be time consuming to prepare. ;]

My cherries look so pathetic. Now I want chocolate covered strawberries...

If I had chocolate I’d dip these!

The spreads are Peanut Butter, a vegan chocolate spread and the fruity stuff is a high quality (i. e. high fruit content) raspberry or strawberry marmalade.

The apricots were indeed very good. :)
