July 2, 2011 Red, White, and Yum
To help with the red, white, and blue spirit of things the kids and I made this tasty treat. We got the idea from our latest issue of Family Fun magazine. Here are the ingredients you need:
Strawberries, cleaned and completely dry. Mine were also cold, which helps the chocolate to set faster
Blue colored sugar or jimmies
White chocolate, or vanilla melting blocks
When I say this is super easy, I really am not exaggerating. It takes more time to prep than to make the treat.
First, melt the chocolate in the microwave. I bought vanilla bar that came in its own melting tray. I set it on high for 1 minute, stirred, and then added 15 second in-travels until it was melted.
While the chocolate is melting, set out a large piece of wax paper to place the strawberries on once they have been dipped. Also place the colored sugar in a small bowl for easy dipping.
After I showed the kids one, I stepped out-of-the-way and let them at it. With the left over chocolate we decided to make chocolate covered pretzels too.
Happy Independence Day!
