4th of July Chocolate Covered Strawberries [Intro to Cooking]

The 4th of July is coming up, and that means parties and barbecues and lots of outdoors.  Whether you’re hosting or just bringing the treats along, it is definitely necessary to make something that will stand out, catch people’s’ eye, and of course, taste delicious!  So instead of wasting the beautiful summer days inside searching for that PERFECT recipe, I’ve done the hard part for you.  What did I find that will totally make your treat (and you, let’s be real) shine?  4th of July themed chocolate covered strawberries!
What You’ll Need:

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries (approx 12 oz)
  • 4-oz white chocolate
  • Blue sanding sugar or sprinkles

How To Make Them:
First, line a baking sheet or cutting board with wax paper or parchment paper.
Then, if the chocolate is in block form, chop it up roughly with a knife.  In a medium-sized, MICROWAVE safe bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave. Heat it in 45 or 60-second intervals, stirring between each time to make sure that the chocolate is melting evenly and not burning. Meanwhile, place blue sanding sugar or sprinkles into a small bowl and set that aside.
When the chocolate is smooth, dip the berries 3/4 of the way into the chocolate, dip the tips into the blue sprinkles, and place on wax paper.  Berries can set at room temperature if you live somewhere cool, otherwise refrigerate them until ready to serve to allow the chocolate to set up.  Easy, breezy, beautiful… delicious!
