Red, White and Blue Strawberries

Red, White and Blue Strawberries

Red, white and blue strawberries are a simple yet festive way to celebrate the 4th of July.  When I saw a picture of these patriotic berries on another blog – Scrambled Hen Fruit (whose inspiration came from Baking Bites) – I wanted to make them immediately for our 4th of July festivities.  They are easy to make and the whole family can help!

Red, white and blue strawberries are a simple and festive way to celebrate the 4th of July.
Ingredients
  • Strawberries
  • White chocolate chips or Wilton white chocolate candy melts
  • Blue sugar sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Wash the strawberries and let them dry completely. (If they are still wet, the chocolate will not stick to the berries.)
  2. Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring it occasionally, until it is smooth and runny.
  3. Pour blue sprinkles into another bowl.
  4. Dip the strawberries in the white chocolate to cover roughly ⅔ of each berry with white chocolate.
  5. Let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl and wipe away any globs of chocolate at the end of the berry.
  6. Then dip the strawberry into the blue sprinkles to cover roughly the bottom ⅓ of the berry with a blue stripe.
  7. Place the dipped strawberries on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper.
  8. Place the berries, uncovered, in the refrigerator to harden.
  9. Store leftover berries in the refrigerator in a sealed container. Chocolate-covered strawberries are best when eaten within 1 or 2 days of being made.
