- Strawberry Cookie Cutter from Sweet Sugarbelle– I used Sweet Sugarbelle’s mini strawberry cookie cutter, but almost any strawberry cutter will work.
Royal Icing Colors:
- Tulip Red- Americolor
- Bright White- Americolor
- Totally Brown- The Cookie Countess
- Sunshine Yellow- The Cookie Countess
- Avocado- Americolor– I made two colors with the Avocado Food Gel Color. I made one light and one a little darker. Then, I place them in the same bag with one color on each side so there would be two different shades of green when you pipe. It’s a good technique for leaves and greenery.
Airbrush System and Colors:
- Airbrush System from The Cookie Countess or the Cookie Countess Royale Max Airbrush System I have and love both machines!
- Totally Brown Edible Airbrush Color– or if you’re like me you can use 1 drop of Positively Purple Edible Airbrush Color and 1 drop of Golden Yellow Edible Airbrush Color to mix your own. (Man I need to place an order for more supplies but it’s good to know you can mix colors and get almost the same results.)

- Royal Red Velvet Edible Airbrush Color by The Cookie Countess
- Piping Bags
- #2 PME Decorating Tips– Some people like outlining their cookies with decorating tips and some people like using the piping bag. If you like tips, these PME are my favorites and they seem to last forever. If you don’t like the tips you can trim off the end of your piping bag. Do what works for you.
- Turkey Lacer
- Leaf Decorating Tip for the top of the chocolate-covered strawberry cookies or you can cut a “v” in the tip of your piping bag and get the same results.

Let’s make some chocolate-covered strawberry cookies!
- Once you bake your sugar cookies and let them cool you can begin decorating.
- Outline the top part of the strawberry cookie with the tulip red royal icing. I like to use my #2 PME Decorating tip because I’m old school. That is the way I learned to decorate and I’m totally comfortable doing it that way. If you like to outline with tipless piping bags and no tips then go for it. There’s more than one way to outline a sugar cookie. Do what works for you!
- Next, flood the strawberry cookie with the Tulip Red flood-consistency royal icing. If you’d like more information on outline and flood consistency royal icing you can check out Royal Icing Consistency- What You Need to Know.
- Let the top of the strawberry dry for a little while. It doesn’t have to be completely dry, but it helps if the top of royal icing forms a crust before you add the air from the airbrush system. If you airbrush before it’s dry your icing will do a little dance and may slide off the side of the cookie. Nope. I’ve never done that before! Lol
- Airbrush the edge around the Royal Red Velvet Edible Airbrush Color by The Cookie Countess.
Time to add the chocolate:
- Outline the bottom of the strawberry with the outline consistency of the Totally Brown royal icing.
- Next, use the Totally Brown royal icing flood consistency to fill in the chocolate part of the cookie.
- Pipe the top of the strawberry leaves by using the leaf or “v”-shaped tip as I call them. Pipe the leaves one at a time and start at the edge. I like the last leaf that’s piped to be in the middle so it looks like it’s upfront.
Time for the finishing touches:
- Pipe yellow royal icing drops on the red part of the strawberry. Pipe as many or as few as you’d like. Just make sure the thin part of the drop is pointing to the top of the strawberry.
- Then, airbrush the chocolate part of the strawberry cookie with the Totally Brown Edible Airbrush Color.
- Next, add the white chocolate stripes across the chocolate part of the strawberry.
- Last but not least, spray the edges of the leaves of the chocolate-covered strawberry cookie with Glowing Green Airbrush Color by The Cookie Countess.
You’re all done!
I hope you enjoy making these chocolate-covered strawberry cookies because they’re a great addition to a box of decorated chocolate cookies for Valentine’s Day. These are great cookies because they’re not hard to make. If you mix these with sugar cookies that are decorated like chocolate candy it will help the set stand out and people will go crazy for them.
I’ll be back soon with a tutorial on chocolate candy cookies to complete this simple set.
