Oh, these are so cute. And so easy. And so festive I can hardly even stand it. Full disclosure: I don’t love them with the vehemence that I love my Chocolate Salted Strawberries, but the adorableness factor compensates for the fact that they include milk chocolate’s sad cousin, white chocolate.
We had a little pool party for some friends on Saturday, and I used it as an opportunity to play around with some summery recipe ideas I’ve been meaning to try, and let me tell you: these were quite the hit. More easy, party-friendly dishes coming up, so if you’re planning a Fourth of July get-together stay tuned – totally got you covered. But you can go ahead and start with these, because they are Oh So American.
What You Need:
1 dozen strawberries
1 cup best-quality white chocolate chips
1/2 cup blue sugar sprinkles
What You Do:
1. Wash the strawberries, and pat them dry with paper towels (the chocolate won’t stick well if they’re still wet).
2. Lay a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet, and pour the sprinkles into a bowl.
3. Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in thirty-second increments (stirring in between) until smooth.
4. One at a time, dip the strawberries into the white chocolate until coated 2/3 of the way up, then immediately dip the lower 1/3 into the sprinkles. Set on wax paper in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set. (Probably make these the day you plan to eat them; they’ll keep for a couple of days but they won’t be as good as they are day-of.)
