Patriotic Chocolate Covered Strawberries | Kid Friendly Things To Do

patriotic chocolate covered strawberries

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
  • wax paper


  • 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
