Red, White, and Blue Strawberries

These red, white, and blue strawberries are perfect for 4th of July.

Begin by washing the strawberries and let them dry.

(Even my dish towel was patriotic, notice the star!)

Melt semisweet or milk chocolate in the microwave or over the stovetop. Chocolate too thick?  Add in a little neutral oil like canola oil to thin out the chocolate.  I added about 1/4 tsp. to 1 cup of chocolate.  This made the chocolate nice and smooth so, it could coat the strawberries well.

Dip strawberries in chocolate.

Then dip into blue sprinkles.

Put the dipped strawberries on a sheet of wax paper to cool.

 

In another bowl, melt white chocolate, adding oil if too thick. Dip more strawberries in white chocolate. Skip the sprinkles though.

Finally, leave some strawberries naked (without chocolate).

Put the wax paper sheet with the strawberries in the fridge for 15 minutes to help set up the chocolate.

Leftover chocolate?  Tip some smaller strawberries, using a spoon to coat with that last bit of chocolate.

Drizzle the other chocolate over top to cover up any imperfections.

Remove strawberries from the fridge. Arrange on a plate.  I recently bought some decorative plates in different sizes and shades.  This is one of my purchases.  It was the perfect size for these beauties.

Enjoy!

 

Another option:

Dip strawberries in white chocolate, and then just dip the tip of the strawberry into the sprinkles.  Each strawberry has all three American colors.

I like the other idea because I prefer regular chocolate to white chocolate, but both designs compliment the strawberries in a sweet way.

Either way, enjoy with friends and family.  Have a wonderful 4th of July!
