Easy Chocolate Covered Red, White, And Blue Strawberries

Nanni always has some sort of special treat for the sons at every holiday gathering. Our 4th of July cookout was no exception. When I saw these, I was excited. Talk about taking chocolate covered strawberries to a whole new level! They were absolutely decious and a stunning addition to the table. I can’t wait to make another batch, this time getting the sons involved.

Strawberries dipped in white chocolate, and blue sugar are a fun and easy dessert, and make a perfect patriotic candy for the 4th of July, or the 5th (you know for all the celebratory cookouts all weekend long). It’s not too late to make a batch either, they’re totally last-minute friendly. So whether it’s at some point this weekend, or at next year’s festivities, bring a special sweetness and a hail to the redwhite and blue in celebration of our independence.

Hold on to the recipe though ….. Christmas is 174 days away and these are just as eye catching using green.

4 Sons 'R' Us: Red White and Blue Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Directions

1. Place blue sugar in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl melt the chocolate, either in the microwave for two minute intervals, stirring in between until totally melted, in a mini crockpot set to low (this will keep it warm for some time and allow you more time to work), or using a double boiler on the stove top. Holding the stem, dip the lower two thirds of the strawberries in the melted white chocolate. Then, dip the lower third of the strawberries in the blue sugar or spoon it onto the strawberry.
3. Place on wax paper or a Silpat and refrigerate until completely cool.
