White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

 Here's a quick & easy treat to serve this Independence Day. The strawberries are in season & absolutely gorgeous. The scent is beautiful.

My hubby, who is restricting his sugar intake, told me to make these even though he know he wouldn't be eating them. This is a nice twist on the flag for the holiday.

Everyone, please, have a safe & happy July 4th!!!

White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries with Blue & Red Sugar Crystals

Wash the strawberries really well, leaving the leafy stems on.

Melt the white candy melts to package directions (or the white chocolate chips over a double boiler not letting the chocolate touch the heat source). I used the Candy Melts melted in a small glass bowl, in the microwave. *Lishie tip- You can also add food coloring to the white chocolate here...

When the candy is melted, dip the stawberry into the melted chocolate. Allow to drip a little, then quickly place the berry on parchment paper. Before the chocolate sets too much, sprinkle colored sugar crystals (or nuts or non-pareils or jimmies/sprinkles) onto chocolate-dipped berry. Allow to dry.
