Looking for a fun last-minute treat for your 4th of July celebration? Make these easy patriotic white chocolate strawberries!
What’s better than chocolate? Chocolate covered strawberries!
I have my in-laws coming into town from Utah this weekend. My husband’s parents and two of his brothers. We’re going to beach it up. That’s the best part of living in California is having the beach to take guests to. Easy (and free!) entertainment. 😉
We’re also going to BBQ and make a few salads. For dessert, I was going back and forth between no-bake cheesecakes parfaits and layered shortcakes. But then I thought, why not whip up some red, white and blue chocolate covered strawberries? Booyah!
So I headed to the store to get some groceries and supplies to make a trial batch of white chocolate covered strawberries. I brought my two little guys with me; they’re 3 and 4 years old. (I know, what was I thinking?!)
Well, we happened to see a Muslim women wearing a black scarf to cover her face, doing her grocery shopping. My oblivious 4-year old points to the lady and of course, we’re right within earshot of her, LOUDLY says, “Look mom! A ninja!”
I wanted to crawl into a hole.
I just ducked my head and kept on moving. Kids say the first thing that comes to their minds, ha!
After we rushed it out of the grocery store, we came home and I melted the Candiquik white chocolate and let my little name-calling boys have at it.
They helped me dip these strawberries and then roll the bottoms in blue sprinkles. They loved. every. single. second.
It was sort of hard for my OCD butt to sit there and let them do the dipping, but I got a few pretty ones dipped too, so it was all good. 😉
They had a blast and then we got to sit and eat these cute little patriotic white chocolate strawberries. They are ridiculously delicious and so easy! For sure making these again when my in-laws come in this weekend! What’s your favorite 4th of July treat??
Red, White & Blue Chocolate Strawberries

I cannot stop laughing! I can only imagine your face when your little one bluttered that out! But luckily you have these strawberries to comfort you. Talk about gorgeous and delicious!
These are so cute and it would be so much fun for the kids to do! Mine would probably eat them all by the time they were finished. 🙂 Hope you have a great 4th of July, Jen!
these are so cute and perfect for a party!
We live in a rural area in the midwest and there is a decent Amish population around here. We were out to eat at a restaurant and my son had to potty. I took the opportunity to use the facilities myself and he waited just outside the stall. An Amish woman had walked in right after us and while I was in the stall, and she was washing her hands, my then 3 year old yelled out “Mommy, why does she have a bucket on her head!?” …..
I couldn’t see her face, but I hope she was understanding and in the restroom long enough to hear me explain that it’s a hat called bonnet. Oh lawd did I want to just crawl into the u-bend in the toilet….
It’s a little late for me to make these strawberries for the 4th, but they look delicious. Thanks for sharing!
OMG this is TOO FUNNY!!! ROFL! Thanks for sharing!
