Red, White and Blue Strawberries

I love making treats that look impressive when you set them out on a tray, but are really easy to make.  For the Memorial Day barbeque I went to yesterday, I brought some of my Hamburger Cookies and these awesome Patriotic Strawberries!  Both look super cool, and were a big hit, but literally just take minutes to put together (and you don't even have to turn on the oven!)


Patriotic, fun, easy and YUMMY!

NOTE:  I found this fun idea on Pinterest.  It's an awesome site where you can "pin" pictures and links of things you find on the web and browse the pins of others.  It's by invite only, but I have a few invites to give away.  Just let me know your email address and I can send you one.  ( Just prepare to give up a ton of your time looking at all the great ideas! )


INGREDIENTS:


  • whole fresh strawberries (rinsed off and dried on a paper towel)
  •  white melting chocolate
  • blue decorating sugar crystals  (in the baking section at the grocery store)



DIRECTIONS: ( Really, it's so simple you don't even need directions ~ but I'll give a couple tips!)

1.  Melt the white chocolate according to the package directions.

2.  Dip the strawberries in the chocolate.


3.  Dip the chocolate strawberries in the blue sugar crystals.  ( So the sugar doesn't get too gloppy with the liquid chocolate drips, I ended up spooning the sugar on instead of dipping the whole strawberry in)


4.  Set on waxed paper to cool.  ( If you can avoid it, don't refrigerate the dipped strawberries ~ I did on my first batch and the condensation that formed made the sugar a little bit wet and sticky.  Other batches that weren't refrigerated were fine)






5.  To impress your guests even more,  put your dipped strawberries on a "crystal" tray (from the Dollar store! ;)  )

Looks very Martha Stewart, doesn't it?  :)

  3. Jess, I used the Log House Vanilla CandiQuik. I found it at Target. It was really easy to use and I liked the taste even better than the usual little chocolate melting circle things that I usually use.
