Who says that chocolate covered strawberries have to be boring?? This is the perfect patriotic treat and so simple to make. Grab your kiddos, they will enjoy making them with you. Hold on to the recipe ….. Christmas is 175 days away and these are just as eye catching using green sprinkles.
1 pint fresh strawberries, rinsed and dried very well
4 ounces of white chocolate (we used Wilton candy melts)
Blue sanding sugar or sprinkles
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Put the chocolate melts in a medium-sized, microwave-safe bowl and melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Be careful as white chocolate burns very easily.
Holding a strawberry by its stem, dip about 2/3 of it into the melted chocolate. Use a spoon to help smooth the chocolate out. Place your sanding sugars or sprinkles into a small dish and dip the tip of your chocolate strawberries into this dish. Repeat until all of the strawberries are completed.
Refrigerate the tray of dipped strawberries until the chocolate is completely set. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Yield: 12 chocolate dipped strawberries
