I just realized the other day that the 4th of July is NEXT WEEK. June is blowing by like a breeze. Then I realized this blog is sorely lacking all things Red, White, and Blue, so I had to get busy…and fast.
These Bicentennial Berries were a good place to start. I know…strawberries are delicious without any extra adornments, but these are delicious and really cute when they are all dressed up – perfect for 4th of July. Have I mentioned that I love this holiday? It’s a great day to celebrate our beautiful country. And what better way to celebrate than having a cookout, or get-together with family and friends? I’ve made these before but had kind of forgotten about them until someone asked me for ideas on something quick and easy to make for their holiday get-together. Of course I thought of these adorable white chocolate covered sugar dipped Bicentennial Berries.
There ya go. The cutest and best dressed Bicentennial Berries you could ask for. Y’all have a wonderful and safe 4th of July holiday.
- White chocolate (baking squares,or chips work fine), or white melting chips, or almond bark
- Blue sanding sugar
- Wash and dry strawberries making sure berries are completely dry. In a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate (or candy coating, melting chips) in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. If using white chocolate add ½ teaspoon of vegetable oil to every ½ cup of chocolate squares or chips to make dipping easier.
- Dip berries into chocolate, and then into sanding sugar. Place on wax paper until set.
- These are best if eaten the same day they are prepared.
