Equipment

  • Parchment or wax paper
  • Ziploc bag
  • Microwave-safe bowls

Ingredients

  • 1 lb large strawberries
  • 12 ounces white candy melts (1 package)
  • 3 ounces red candy melts
  • blue sanding sugar

Instructions

  • Prepare the strawberries. Wash and dry the strawberries and allow them to come to room temperature.
  • Melt the white candy melts. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white candy melts according to package directions. Pour the blue sparkling sugar into a small bowl
  • Dip into the white chocolate and add blue sugar. Holding the strawberry by the green top or with a skewer, dip it into the white candy coating. You can either coat it fully or leave red "shoulders". Immediately after coating, dip the strawberry into a small bowl of blue sugar. Place onto wax paper to harden.
  • Add red stripes. Melt the red candy melts in a small microwave-safe bowl and transfer into a small zipper-top bag. Pipe red stripes onto the white portion of the strawberries.

Notes

For variation, try dipping strawberries in red white and blue sprinkles.
