If you read my last post about Jell-o, you will know that we are going on a picnic this weekend to celebrate the 4th of July. I decided last minute to add another dessert, umm… I mean fruit, to our basket. So here they are… sweet strawberries with a little patriotic flair. These were fun to make with my 3 year old, he sat there and narrated everything I was doing “Now dipping into the chocolate!” “Now dipping into the blue stuff!” “Now it goes into my mouth!” He only got one for being a good helper (and lots of pre-dipped strawberries too).
Recipe: 4th of July Strawberries
- 1+ cup White Melting Chocolate
- 12 strawberries
- Sprinkles of choice
- Set up workspace by putting sprinkles in a small containers. Have an extra container handy. I used ramekins. Wash and dry strawberries. Lay out wax paper.
- Melt chocolate in a microwavable safe bowl in the microwave by slowly doing 10 second intervals and stirring until its the right consistency for dipping.
- Dip strawberry into chocolate, then hold over an empty bowl, shake the sprinkles onto the chocolate part. (This will help reduce the clumping in your sprinkles. ) Lay on wax paper to harden. Repeat for all. Melt more chocolate as needed.
