Red, White & Blue Strawberries

I brought these to last week's Memorial Day BBQ, which my good friends Christie and Steve host every year.  They were a special request, having been a huge hit when I first shared them at a party a couple of years ago.  They are very impressive but extra easy to make.  They taste pretty good, too!

  • Strawberries
  • White candy melts
  • Blue candy melts
  • Sort through strawberries, discarding damaged ones.
  • Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Melt white candy melts according to package instructions.
  • Dip strawberry into white candy, going about 3/4 of the way up the berry and allowing the excess to drip off, back into the dish of candy.
  • Place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat with remaining strawberrries and chill briefly in the freezer.
  • Repeat process with blue candy melts, dipping only 1/4 to 1/2 way up each berry, to allow white layer to show through.
  • Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Serve on a pretty platter, discarding the parchment paper.
