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??
- white chocolate (I used Candiquik)
- blue sprinkles
- wax or parchment paper
- Melt white chocolate as instructed on the package. Dip strawberries in melted chocolate and then lightly dip in blue sprinkles. Set on wax or parchment paper to harden.
- Repeat until you get the quantity of strawberries desired. Serve and devour!
