Red, White, and Blue chocolate dipped strawberries

Happy Memorial Day! July here and this is a patriotic recipe for you to make!                                                              Here is what you'll need: 
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries (approx 12 oz)
  • 4-oz white chocolate
  • Blue sprinkles

Here is what you'll do:
  • Line a baking sheet or cutting board with wax paper or parchment paper.
  • Chop up the chocolate roughly with a knife if it is in block form. In a medium-sized, microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave. Heat it in 45 or 60-second intervals, stirring between each time to ensure that the chocolate is melting evenly and not burning. Meanwhile, place blue sanding sugar into a small bowl and set it aside.
  • When chocolate is smooth, dip the berries 3/4 of the way into the chocolate, dip the tips into the blue sprinkles, and place on wax paper.
  • Berries can set at room temperature if you live somewhere cool, otherwise refrigerate them until ready to serve to allow the chocolate to set up. Best within day or two of making.
  • And, don't forget to set a tin aside to share with your grandparents or anybody else who has served for our country!
