As we head into the 4th of July weekend let me share a treat that is so easy, yet quite the showstopper. I just made these festive covered strawberries for a 4th of July gathering. The tables were filled with desserts, but these were the first to disappear.
Strawberries, melted white chocolate and blue sugar. That's it! I tried to make some blue sugar using food coloring, but it looked like a pastel bluish-green, so I opted for the ready made version. I melted the white chocolate in the microwave, dipped the strawberry in about half way, holding the strawberry by the stem. Let the excess chocolate drip off, then dip the end of the chocolate covered strawberry in some blue sugar. I placed them on parchment paper to cool before transferring them to a tray. Voila.
