Rinse strawberries well and place into a large container.
Cover the berries with vanilla vodka and place in the fridge overnight to soak.
Drain berries and dry each very well. It’s crucial that they are very dry for the next step.
In a bowl, melt candy melts in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until fully melted. (Careful not to burn!)
Carefully dip berries half way in the melted candy, allowing excess to drip off.
Dip the tips in blue sugar and set on parchment paper to set.
Berries will harden in 10-15 minutes.
