Red, White and Blue Strawberries


Aren't these adorable for the 4th of July? They are so simple to make, it is not too late!

Just like any other chocolate-dipped strawberries, the method for making these is very easy. There is only one additional step; dip the tips of the strawberries into some blue sprinkles or blue sanding sugar once they have been dipped into the chocolate. Blue sprinkles or jimmies have a bold color to them and look cute on the strawberries, but blue sanding sugar, which was used for the strawberries here, gives the berries a little bit of a sparkle. The color of the sprinkles will not stand out well on milk or dark chocolate, and you won’t get the same visual effect as you do with white chocolate. However if you really want milk or dark chocolate, just double dip the berries; first into the chocolate of your choice, let that layer set up, and then dip a second time in the white chocolate. Store the berries in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat them, as white chocolate is a little more heat-sensitive than other chocolates. The berries are best within a day or two of being made.
