2 dozens strawberries
1 12 ounce package orange candy coating, melted

Rinse and dry strawberries.

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. Dip strawberries in melted candy coating and place on prepared baking sheet until set. Transfer remaining candy coating to a resealable plastic bag. Snip the corner and drizzle candy coating over dipped strawberries. Allow to set completely.
