Red, white, and blue strawberries


I think that my favorite crafts are the ones I can eat.  Fun to make.  Fun to enjoy.  My only regret is that they just don't last very long.  I am constantly mourning that my hubby does not eat sweets.  But good for me, he does eat strawberries!  And yes, that includes chocolate-covered strawberries!  I was inspired by a picture of some similar strawberries on Bakerella, (although now I can't seem to find the link anywhere!), and I knew I had to try this out.

Sweet story:  My hubby drove to a couple of different grocery stores searching for the perfect batch of strawberries for me.  What a sweetie!  Using this recipe from Betty Crocker, I mixed up the white chocolate.  It was surprisingly simple!!  I dipped the strawberries in about three quarters of the way, then dabbed the very ends into a bowl of blue sprinkles.  I laid them out to dry on wax paper.   This was the result:

Just one word:  DELICIOUS!  These would be so much fun to make with your kiddos, and a scrumptious treat for a 4th of July picnic!  Little Man's favorite food is, without a doubt, strawberries.  Tonight I surprised him with these beauties, and he couldn't get enough of them!!  He may possibly even like the chocolate more than the strawberries!

By the way, we dipped pretzels to use up the leftover white chocolate, and that was delectable as well!

I hope you enjoy these!!  


Today is the last day to enter the Fun Fourth giveaway!  Check it out here.
