Red, White, and Blue Strawberries – Perfect for 4th of July

This “dessert” couldn’t be easier or more festive for celebrating 4th of July. You only need three items, strawberries, white chocolate, and blue sugar sprinkles. Another great treat to make with your kids. The best part is, it’s healthy and there is no baking involved.

You will need

  • Strawberries (ripe, preferably organic)
  • White chocolate (chips or bar), melted
  • Blue Sugar Sprinkles – you can find them in your local grocery store or buy on Amazon

Directions

Wash and dry the strawberries. Take white chocolate chips or break up a white chocolate bar into a microwave-safe dish, microwave for 20 seconds, mixing occasionally, until melted. Let cool.

Pour blue sugar sprinkles onto a plate. Take a strawberry, dip in the white melted chocolate until 3/4 of the berry is covered, dip in the blue sugar just until the tip is coated. Repeat with remaining strawberries. Place on a cookie sheet, set in the fridge for a few minutes until the chocolate hardens.

Cook’s Note: To make these for any other occasion, instead of blue sugar, dip in mini chocolate chips, crushed nuts, or crushed pretzels for that sweet/salty flavor.
