4th Of July Strawberries
It’s so easy to make this treat! Check out below for step-by-step instructions. But here is what you’ll need to get started.

How To Make 4th of July Strawberries
- Melt white chocolate in a heat proof bowl. I love my chocolate melter, I use it for cake pops and cookie dipping and it works perfectly for dipping strawberries. But you can also heat it up in 30 second intervals in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl.
- Wash and dry your strawberries (make sure your berries are completely dry).
- Dip strawberries a little over half way into the melted white chocolate.
- Dip the strawberry into blue sugar. Set on wax paper or parchment paper on a baking sheet. place strawberries on paper to dry. That’s it! You have a fantastic dessert that was super simple to make perfect for your 4th of July.

These are so cute! I wanted to do them last year but never got around to it. Oh well, there’s always next year!

These are so cute! It’s probably too late for me to do a red, white, and blue color scheme, but maybe I could try a different color sugar. I’d love to bring them to my next girls’ night!
