  • 1 styrofoam cone (8 ½” x 2 ½”)
  • Toothpicks
  • Rolling Pin
  • Small star cookie cutter


  • 32-34 large fresh strawberries (Approximately 2 lbs.)
  • 2 lbs 2 bags green Candy Melts
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp white and gold sprinkles
  • ¼ cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp yellow fondant


  • In a microwave-safe bowl or double boiler, melt the candy melts completely and stir until no lumps remain.
  • Add in the vegetable oil and stir until smooth.
  • Dip strawberry in mixture and coat entirely. Gently place on parchment paper, garnish with sprinkles and let harden. Repeat this step for remaining strawberries.
  • Starting at the bottom of the cone and moving upward toward the top, insert a toothpick into the cone and then stick a chocolate covered strawberry on to the toothpick with the strawberry stem facing the cone.
  • Cover the bottom of the cone and continue working upwards circling the cone.
  • For the top, place a strawberry facing downwards towards the tip of the cone.
  • Roll out yellow fondant with rolling pin and cut out a 1/4” thick star shape. Insert a toothpick through the middle so that it can stand and insert onto the tip of the top strawberry.
  • Insert mint leaves in between the strawberries to cover open spaces.
  • Enjoy!
