White chocolate, blue sprinkles, and red berries combine in this perfectly patriotic summertime treat! These red, white, and blue strawberries are a variation on traditional chocolate-dipped strawberries ​and are perfect for the 4th of July.

You can also vary the colors of the coating and the sprinkles to make these berries for other holidays, birthday parties, or showers.

"These are definitely best enjoyed the day of, they take minimal effort, and are a crowd pleaser. Make sure to really dry the berries, shop for fresh produce, and to slowly heat the chocolate. Remember if you think your chocolate is too thick, simply add some coconut oil to loosen it, making dipping easier." —Jacqueline Tris

Ingredients

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Set aside.

  3. Pat the strawberries very dry with paper towels.

  4. Melt the white chocolate candy coating in a small microwave-safe bowl in short 30-second bursts, stirring after each heating until melted and smooth. Let cool slightly.

  5. Holding a strawberry by the stem, dip it about two-thirds into white chocolate. Since these are red, white, and blue strawberries, make sure you leave a visible red portion at the top of the berry.

  6. Place strawberry on the prepared baking sheet and repeat until all of the berries are dipped.

  7. Refrigerate the tray briefly to set the chocolate, about 5 minutes.

  8. Meanwhile, place the blue sprinkles in a small bowl.

  9. Dip the bottom third of a berry again in white chocolate, then immediately roll in blue sprinkles until the bottom third is covered in blue.

    You can skip the double-dipping and just roll it in sprinkles the first time you dip the berries in chocolate, but it's messier and more difficult to control.

  10. Repeat until all of the berries have a bottom layer of blue sprinkles.

Tip

  • These candies are best enjoyed the same day they are made.
  • White chocolate scorches easily, so stir it after every 30 seconds to keep from overheating.
