Holidays are my favorite!! 4th of July is one of my very favorite holidays. How could you not love 4th of July with all the Americana decor and treats. Bring on the treats!! These patriotic strawberries are a special little treat that you can whip up really quickly. I am world famous for making holiday bark so I always keep chocolate in the house ready for melting. I was feeling very inspired this year, melted my chocolate and started grabbing anything I could. Who could argue with anything chocolate dipped?!
There is an abundance of strawberries in my local stores and they have been on sale almost weekly. They are just delicious and adding this bit of chocolate and sugar sprinkles on the bottom make them absolutely decadent. Your guests will feel spoiled and have no idea just how easy this decadent treat was to make. Impress the best with this delicious piece of strawberry heaven.
In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave. Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power. Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon. You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.
Once chocolate is melted, dip your strawberries into the chocolate and then into a dish with your colored sugar sprinkles. Set aside to dry.
