I have at least four different recipes to share with you. They are all in various stages (partial write-up, photo editing, recipe re-testing), but I keep seeing photos of these chocolate covered strawberries all over the internet, and since this is a holiday weekend for us here in the States (Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving), I thought I would give these a try and bump up the Patriotic Chocolate Covered Strawberries in my recipe sharing que. Actually, this isn’t really a recipe. It seems more like a craft with eatable results!
If you are good with visual directions, just follow the photo below:
This is a great “cooking” opportunity to share with little ones. Let them get their fingers all blue and sugary sticky!
- 12 oz. Wilton White Candy Melts
- 1 pint of fresh strawberries (about 12 large strawberries)
- Blue Sugar Crystals
- Skewers for dipping (optional)
Wash and throughly dry the strawberries. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl on 50% power for about 1 minutes. Stir chocolate, and repeat every 20 seconds or until chocolate is melted and smooth. Dip strawberry in the melted chocolate, then sprinkle on the blue crystals. Set on a piece of parchment or waxed paper and let harden. Enjoy right away.
I used about half of the chocolate package to cover 12 large strawberries. Make sure your strawberries have no moisture on them, otherwise the chocolate won't stick on the berries. Skew your berries before dipping them. The stem cap can easily break off if you dip them by their tops.
