Fourth of July Strawberries


Happy fourth of July!  This is a great recipe for those lacking time to prepare for their July 4th festivities.  These strawberries are fun, patriotic, and taste even better than they look (according to one of my tasters).  Enjoy! 

Fourth of July Strawberries 

Ingredients

2 lbs. strawberries
10 oz. white chocolate
1-2 tsp canola oil
Blue sprinkles or sugar crystals (I ran out of blue sprinkles and finished my batch with multicolor nonpareils)
Wax or parchment paper 

Directions

Wash and dry the strawberries.  While the strawberries are drying pour out your sprinkles into a wide, but deep cup or small bowl.  

Heat the white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted.  Pour in the canola oil, as needed.  Mix to combine and make sure it is smooth.

Now take your strawberries one by one and dip them into the chocolate, then roll the tips into the sprinkles.  Place the strawberries on wax or parchment paper to dry.

  3. Question! I need to make these in bulk ahead of time and store for possibly 3 days. What is the best way to store these and how long can I store them? Thank you!

  4. I found that the sprinkles/nonpareils bled the longer they sat in the fridge due to condensation. I think they are best to eat the day-of, but would also be okay the next day. They just may not look as pretty.
