Red, White, and Blue Chocolate Dipped Strawberries (via Life Tastes Like Food)

Yummy Yum Yum! Now this looks simple enough for me to make. I am def gonna try it!

Red, White, and Blue Chocolate Dipped Strawberries The 4th of July is almost always comprised of social gatherings including BBQs and potlucks! When I was younger, I use to live in a cul de sac where the neighborhood was really child-friendly. Every 4th of July, we would block off the entire neighborhood and hold a huge potluck BBQ that would end in lighting off an obscene amount of fireworks into the darkness. Did anyone else ever use sparklers to write their names in the sidewalk as a kid? It’s … Read More

1 pound of ripe strawberries
1 bag of white chocolate candy melts (or a bag of white chocolate chips)
1 cup of confectioner’s sugar
1 tablespoon of milk
1 tablespoon of light corn syrup
Blue food coloring
Wax paper

Wash and completely dry the strawberries.
In a pot, simmer 1-2 inches of water and place a glass or metal bowl on top of the pot to create a double broiler.
Slowly melt half a bag of the candy melts.
When the melts are completely melted, remove from heat, add the second half of the candy melts, and incorporate until smooth.
If the mixture has cooled down too much to melt everything nicely, simmer the pot of water again and let everything warm up a little bit.

Once the white chocolate is completed melted, dip strawberries about 3/4 of the way and then set on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper for chocolate to harden.
After you’ve dipped all the strawberries, in a separate bowl, mix together the confectioner’s sugar, corn syrup and milk.
Then add as much blue food coloring (two drops at at time) to get the right shade of blue you want.
If you want a thicker icing, use less milk.
And if you want a thinner icing, add more milk.

Then spoon icing into a piping bag (I used a ziplock bag).
If you are using a ziplock bag, cut a very small hole in the corner.
Once the chocolate on the strawberries is completely hardened,
drizzle the icing back and forth on the strawberries until about half of the white chocolate area is covered.
If it’s easier, hold the strawberry by the stem/top as you drizzle so you can rotate it easily to make smoother lines.
Let the icing set, then grab one for yourself, take a big bite, and enjoy!
