Prepare treats to be dipped, if necessary. Most fruits should be washed and dried before dipping. If using pieces of bananas or apples, dip them first into lemon juice to prevent discoloration and allow to dry. Melt desired amount of candy and place into a bowl.
Hold strawberries and cherries by stems to dip in candy. For other fruit, pretzels and small cookies, use a fork or spoon.
Place treats on cookie sheet covered with waxed or parchment paper. Refrigerate until firm. Accent your treats by rolling or topping with nuts, sprinkles, shredded coconut, or cocoa powder.
