Things You’ll Need

  • 10 to 12 strawberries

  • 2 1/2 cups (12 ounces) orange candy melts

  • Oreos

  • Chocolate pudding (optional)

  • Small condiment containers or 4-ounce mason jars


The amount of pudding and Oreos you need will depend on the size of your containers. You can use many different containers, including small mason jars, ceramic ramekins or even tiny tin buckets.

Ingredients for carrot patch strawberries

Step 1

Fill a small pot half full with water. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Put a small heat-safe bowl over the pot, making sure it fits snugly. The bottom of the bowl shouldn't touch the water. Next, place the orange candy melts in the bowl.

Step 2

Gently stir the candy melts. Continue heating until they are melted and smooth. For best results, follow the instructions on the packaging.

Step 3

Dip each strawberry into the melted candy. Carefully rotate to fully coat, keeping the leaves out of the mixture. You can try holding the strawberry by the leaves, as long as they are't too delicate.

Step 4

Repeat with the remaining strawberries, placing them a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Chill in the refrigerator until the candy hardens.

Step 5

While the strawberries are chilling, place the Oreos in a food processor or blender. Crush into crumbs. You can leave some chunks to create the illusion of dirt.

Feel free to customize your carrot patch strawberries. For example, you can mix the pudding and Oreo crumbs together to create "mud." Or, in place of the Oreos and pudding, you can fill the containers with crumbled chocolate cake. The carrot strawberries can also be displayed on top of chocolate cake.
