4th of July White Chocolate Strawberries

 

 

We are attending some 4th of July fireworks tonight at a local outdoor historical museum called Greenfield Village. It is a lovely setting and music will be provided by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. We will arrive early with our group of friends and set up our blankets, chairs and a picnic to enjoy, while we relax and listen to the concert.

I am taking three dishes - Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip, grilled asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and the White Chocolate Strawberries pictured above. My friends will bring other yummy finger food and we will have a delicious pre - fireworks spread to enjoy.

This pin in where the inspiration for the colorful strawberries came from - in fact, it is one of the very first things I tried on Pinterest. One year later and the ideas on Pinterest just keep coming - I love it!

 

Recipe for White Chocolate Strawberries

Use a good quality white chocolate and break into pieces and place in microwave safe bowl. Add a few drops of cooking oil and microwave for 30 seconds; stir and microwave in 20 second intervals until melted; stirring each time until smooth. (Cooking oil will add shine and help chocolate adhere)

Immediately dip bottom of strawberry in melted chocolate, then dip the very end in blue sprinkles.

Place on wax paper lined cookie sheet or tray and refrigerate until chocolate is set; about one hour.


Happy Wednesday!

  2. Sounds like you have the perfect Independence Day celebration planned! I'm so jealous! Our best friends who we've celebrated with over the years are out of town this year. Just isn't the same.

  3. Katie saw those and thought about making them, but chose to do the pretzel sticks instead (time was short).
