  This Cinco de Mayo treat from Harvard Sweet Boutique inspired today’s tip.

For snacks or desserts, dip fresh strawberries in melted chocolate and decorate in festive colors: aqua, pink, purple or lavender and yellow, for example.

Start with this easy recipe for chocolate-dipped fruit.

Then use decorator icing to pipe squiggles and dots

You can also tint white chocolate pink with food color, and use colored sanding sugar (recipe).
