Find a plate that fits your heart mold and set the mold on the plate.
Place each color of candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and place all of the bowls into the microwave. Microwave on 50% power for 60 seconds. Stir each color. Repeat, stirring each color until melted.
Add a dollop of color into the mold, spreading out and mixing up the colors. Use a knife to spread the colors together and mix them into each other. Use the back of a spoon to spread the candy melts onto the sides of the mold. Freeze for 10 minutes.
Place remaining colors of candy melts into a small bowl and swirl with a knife.
Dredge strawberries into the bowl and lay on a piece of wax paper. Immediately sprinkle with sprinkles. Let stand to harden.
Melt milk chocolate in a microwave safe bowl by placing it into the microwave at 50% power for 60 seconds. Stir and repeat until completely melted.
Spread second layer of chocolate into the heart smoothing it out with the back of the spoon and making sure it goes over the sides of the heart. Freeze for 10 minutes.
Find two plates to fit the heart mold. One will be the serving plate. Set that aside. Place the mold with cavity facing down onto another plate and gently peel the chocolate from the mold.
Place the chocolate heart, open side up onto the plate. Fill the heart with various candy.
Place the serving plate, face down onto the open heart and pick up both plates, with the mold in the center, and flip over both plates, putting the heart right side up onto the serving plate and leaving the candy inside the heart.
