This is a fun and easy patriotic food idea that the kids can help decorate.
2 dozen Strawberries, rinsed and dried
1 bag of royal Blue (or dark blue) candy melts
Glass (microwave proof) bowl
White star sprinkles – or red, white and blue sprinkles of your choice
Melt the chocolate melts
*I like to place the melts into a microwave-proof glass bowl and microwave it for 1 minute, stir and place back into the microwave for 30 more seconds
Dip strawberries halfway into the chocolate – leaving some red of the strawberry exposed
Hold the strawberry over the bowl, allowing the excess chocolate to drip off
Place the strawberries on wax paper
While the chocolate is still warm, quickly add white stars to the blue chocolate that is on the strawberry
*I liked to make a circle pattern with the stars, but you can also just sprinkle the stars onto the chocolate. Another alternative would be to use white dot sprinkles or red, white and blue sprinkles in place of stars
Repeat with the rest of your strawberries
Store in a covered container at room temperature with wax paper placed directly over the strawberries for added protection to the fruit
Best if served the day of making, but you can also serve them within 24 hours of making them
If you can’t find white stars, you can use any red, white and blue sprinkles that you have available to you
