Red, White and Blue Chocolate Covered Patriotic Strawberries

These sweet treats will cheer up any dessert table!

You will need:

  • Fresh strawberries, rinsed
  • White chocolate melts
  • Blue sugar sprinkles

How to make:

  • Place chocolate in your melter and heat until thoroughly melted.
  • Place wax paper on your workspace.  (I laid out a piece of wax paper on the table and then placed another piece in my tupperware container for easy transport to the refrigerator.
  • Pour several tablespoons of blue sprinkles into a small bowl.
  • When chocolate is thoroughly melted, dip strawberries one at a time in the melter (leaving some red visible at the top).

  • Instead of dipping the chocolate covered strawberries directly into the sprinkles, I used a spoon and spooned the sprinkles onto the lower end of the berry.  This gave me a little more control over where the color was going.
  • Place finished strawberry on wax paper and repeat until you run out of strawberries.
  • Place strawberries in refrigerator and leave them there until you are ready to serve.

I was pleased with how cute these looked after my first attempt at making them!  They will be a fun treat to  share at our family picnic on July 4th.
