Make sure your strawberries are washed and dried. I prefer to use room temperature berries as cold berries tend to "sweat" while they warm up, causing the strawberry to retain moisture.
Place a toothpick into the center of each strawberry.
Line a cutting board or baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
Working with half a bag of candy melts at a time (pink or blue), add half the bag to a microwave safe dish and microwave for 60 seconds at 50% powder. Stir well. Return to microwave for the same amount of time and stir well until completely smooth.
Dredge berries into chocolate to evenly coat. Gently wipe on the edge of the bowl any excess chocolate before placing onto prepared cutting board.
Repeat with remaining berries. Let berries stand to harden.
Using half a bag of peanut butter candy melts, place into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 60 seconds at 50% powder. Stir and repeat, stirring until smooth.
Dredge berries into peanut butter chocolate, covering about 3/4 of the way from the bottom to the top of the berry to create the cone.
Return to wax paper and let stand to harden. Place any remaining peanut butter candy melts into a resealable sandwich bag and seal shut.
Once the "cone" of the strawberry is hardened, knead the bag of candy melts to see if it is soft. If it is not, place it into glass of hot water and let stand for 2-3 minutes. Then knead until smooth.
Snip a very small corner off the bag with scissors and carefully drizzle over the strawberry, moving in a diagonal direction to make a waffle cone look. Let stand to harden.
Place half a bag of white candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on 50% power for 60 seconds. Stir and repeat, stirring until smooth.
Place melted white chocolate into a resealable sandwich bag and seal shut. Snip the tip of the bag and pipe the ice cream onto the strawberries, making sure to cover the color of the gender reveal.
Sprinkle with sprinkles and repeat on remaining berries.
Let stand to harden.
Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Please note, if you refrigerate, chocolate covered berries overnight, they do tend to "leak" a little strawberry juice, usually on the bottom, but the berries will taste fine.
Please note that there will not be any suggested nutritional values as this will depend on how many strawberries you make.Note on ChocolateWhile it may be tempting to use real milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or chocolate chips to create chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate seizes up SUPER quickly.For ease of use, an excellent candy melt is much less frustrating and makes making a box of chocolate-covered strawberries easy. You can find baking chocolate, bark, and candy melt chocolate in baking supply aisles at the store or large candy-making aisles at craft stores like Micheals and Hobby Lobby.
