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. Saw these on Family Fun too. Made them yesterday and they were so yummy and cute. I used almond bark (because it was cheaper) and blue sprinkles. Tasted delicious!

  2. I just made these a little while ago. They came out perfect!! So easy and so patriotic (and semi-healthy!). I love your blog! Can’t wait to get your cookbook! Happy 4th of July!

  3. These are so fun! I just got done making them and am so sad I didn’t come across your blog first. I didn’t add the oil and I had a problem with the chocolate being too thick (I’ll get it right next time). However, sometimes it is just about the effort! Happy 4th!
