Red, White and Blue Strawberries

I meant to post this in time for the Fourth of July but I have these twins and all... I know that really doesn't have much to do with why I didn't post this earlier, but one of my friends told me that I could use that as an excuse whenever I needed to, so I decided to give it a try.  Did it work?

At any rate, these were super cute and the girls loved it.  I saw a picture of these on pinterest and decided to give them a try for the 4th.  They took about 10 minutes to prepare and then I let them harden in the fridge.  It would be a great recipe to have kids help you with too!

They were perfect to let everyone snack on while we finished up the grilling and whatnot for dinner. Give them a try the next time you are in a patriotic mood.  But, strawberries dipped in white chocolate and colored sugar would probably still taste okay even if they aren't served on a holiday. 

Red, White and Blue Strawberries
1 lb. carton of strawberries (rinsed)
3 blocks white chocolate candy bark (melted)
1/2 cup blue sugar sprinkles

After rinsing each strawberry make sure all the water is dried off of each one so that the chocolate will stick.  Melt white chocolate slowly according to package directions.  Dip each strawberry 2/3 of the way into melted chocolate and then immediately into the sprinkles (making sure to leave some of the white showing).  Place on a flat surface and allow to harden.  I placed them in the fridge for about an hour to chill and removed them a few minutes before serving to soften slightly.
