Red, White, and Blue Patriotic Strawberries

CATEGORIES: Fruit, Independence Day, Sara

Happy Fourth!  I’m sure most of you are out and about enjoying the holiday, but I wanted to leave one quick and easy idea for anyone checking in today!  I’ve made these patriotic berries before but had kind of forgotten about them until one of you lovely readers (thanks Karin!) posted a picture on our facebook page. We love our Facebook page and we love you readers!

If you need a quick idea for today’s festivities, this one is for you – quick and easy Patrioric Strawberries! You might already have everything you need!

Just melt some white chocolate (either baking chocolate, or chocolate chips works fine) or almond bark.  If you’re using white chocolate, add 1/2 tsp vegetable oil or shortening to every 1/2 cup diced chocolate or chips to make dipping easier.

Make sure your berries are dry and give them a dunk

Then dip in blue sprinkles or colored sugar

And there you go, cute as can be!

We hope you all have a wonderful holiday!  Our genuine gratitude goes out to all of the men and women serving in our armed forces right now, and to their families as well.  We honor your service and appreciate what you do to keep this beautiful country truly the land of the free and the home of the brave.

  1. What a fabulous and easy idea! I just got back from the grocery store…unfortunately I spent $86 to get these ingredients and a few other things…ugh! But thank you very much – I will keep this one on hand for other times/occasions as they’re super cute!

  2. WooHoo!! I got OBB Love!!! hehe… I appreciate the mention! I just wanted to share cuz they were so dang cute! And I will be making these soon myself!!

  3. Thanks, Sara! We just picked a bunch of strawberries so this will be perfect! And a happy fourth to you and Kate as well. I was thinking about how lucky we are in this country, even for something as small as a blog! There are some places where the government doesn’t allow online networking like this. We truly are blessed in small and mysterious ways each day. Have a great day (and don’t blow your fingers of with the sparklers)! 🙂

  4. So cute! My youngest’s birthday is July 2, and her cake this year had red, white, and blue flowers on them. I’ll remember this idea for next year’s cake!
