Red White and Blue Chocolate Covered Strawberries

One of my favorite things to do for the 4th of July parties is making delicious desserts. I have to say these red white and blue chocolate-covered strawberries are one of my favorites. They are simple to make and they are such a great addition to any dessert table. Pair it with our 4th of July Patriotic Crack and our patriotic no-bake cheesecake trifle

Ingredients:

1 pound strawberries, washed and dried (tops on)

1 cup white melting chocolate, broken into pieces (I used a 4-ounce white baking bar)

Assortment of red, white, and blue sprinkles

How to Make Red, White, and Blue Chocolate Covered Strawberries

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place the white chocolate pieces into a medium microwaveable bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each time. Continue until all the chocolate pieces are completely melted (don’t overheat). 

  • Pour a few tablespoons of each kind of sprinkle into small, separate bowls. 

  • Hold the strawberry by the top and dip it into the melted chocolate, leaving the top third uncovered. Alternatively, you can spoon the melted chocolate onto the bottom ⅔ of the strawberry. Gently shake off any excess. 

  • Immediately spoon the sprinkles carefully onto the bottom third of the strawberry, leaving a plain white center band. 

  • Place the dipped strawberries on the tray lined with the parchment paper. Let them sit for about 30 minutes or until the chocolate sets. After the chocolate is set, place the dipped berries on a tray and serve.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • With 1 cup of chocolate, you will be able to cover 12 strawberries. If you are dipping more or want more of the strawberry covered you will want to double the recipe. 
  • It is easier to use a spoon to add sprinkles onto the chocolate rather than dipping them. 
  • You want to hold the very top of the strawberry while you are dipping it. If there is a stem you will want to hold on to the stem. 
  • It is best to place these strawberries in the fridge for about an hour if you need to transport them or they will be sitting outside. 
If your chocolate begins to harden while you are dipping strawberries, no worries! Just place it back in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir.  You may also use a double boiler as well.

Storage

You will want to store your chocolate dipped strawberries in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. You may be able to enjoy them longer as long as the strawberries are not mushy or the tops brown.

Can I use a different type of chocolate?

If you find yourself without melting chocolate you may use chocolate chips as well. You will want to add 1 Tablespoon of vegetable shortening or coconut oil to it. 

You can also use white candy melts, however, these usually are not white chocolate flavored.

What happens if my chocolate begins to harden?

If your chocolate begins to harden while you are dipping strawberries, no worries! Just place it back in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. 

You may also use a double boiler as well.
