Today I have the perfect Christmas treat for any celebration. If you love the Grinch, then you'll want to try these tasty and addicting candy strawberries!

These are a favorite with everyone in my family, both kiddos and adults. Everyone loves strawberries, but the candy melts, crunchy sprinkles and frosting make every bite sweet and tasty.

What's great about these strawberries, they can be made ahead of time. We prefer to make them the day of, but you can make them up to two days ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving.

They would never last two days in the fridge at our house since they are so yummy and addicting. 

These are perfect for a Grinch themed party, or fun to eat when you're watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas. That movie is always a family favorite and we watch it together every year around the holidays.

Recipe tips:


  • If you don’t have a piping bag or #18 open star tip, you can substitute a quart size ziploc bag, and just cut the tip with kitchen shears to create small dots instead of stars. 
  • The candy melts will not adhere to cold strawberries. Make sure they are room temperature before dipping.

Grinch Candy Strawberries

Ingredients

  • 8 large strawberries, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup green candy melts
  • 1/2 cup green sugar sprinkles
  • frosting (store bought or homemade)
  • red heart shaped sprinkles
  • cake pop/lollipop stick
  • frosting piping bag
  • size #18 open star tip decorating tip

Instructions

  1. Remove the hull from each strawberry. Pat dry on a paper towel, so that the candy melts will adhere better to the strawberries.
  2. Melt the green candy melts per the package instructions in a glass bowl. Insert a cake pop/lollipop stick into the pointy end of each strawberry, and then dip the flat end of the strawberry into the melted green candy. Only dip about ⅓ of the strawberry into the melted candy, then immediately dip into the green sugar sprinkles. Remove the cake pop/lollipop stick, and place on a piece of wax paper or parchment paper to set for at least 3 minutes.
  3. While the strawberries are setting, place a #18 open star decorating tip into a frosting piping bag, and cut the tip with kitchen shears. Fill the bag with white frosting of your choice, and pipe small stars all the way around the border of where the green candy/sprinkles meets the strawberries. Pipe one small star on the tip of the strawberries.
  4. Dip a toothpick into the frosting bag, and dot a small amount on the back of a red heart shaped sprinkle, and attach to the green sprinkles on each of the strawberries. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving.

Notes

If you don’t have a piping bag or #18 open star tip, you can substitute a quart size ziploc bag, and just cut the tip with kitchen shears to create small dots instead of stars. 


These can be kept for up to two days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.


The candy melts will not adhere to cold strawberries. Make sure they are room temperature before dipping.
