Red, White and Blue

In honor of our nation’s birthday, last night I celebrated at a roofdeck party overlooking the city of Chicago. The temperature might have been hovering near 100, but these cute strawberries (and maybe the ice cold vodka lemonade) provided some much-needed refreshment.

I’m not sure who made these delicious treats (see photo – any takers?), but I had to come home and experiment with a copycat recipe for y’all today. Turns out, there’s not much to these (i.e. you have no excuse)….

July 4th Red, White & Blue Strawberries:

Large strawberries,  1 pint

White chocolate (I like Callebaut), 6 to 8 ounces

Blue sanding sugar, as needed

Clean strawberries and dry thoroughly, leaving stem intact. Heat chocolate in microwave in 10 second increments, until just melted, and stir until smooth. Dip strawberries in chocolate 2/3 up side, then immediately in blue sanding sugar 1/3 up side. Place on parchment paper until chocolate has hardened. Enjoy!
