I can’t wait to make another batch, this time getting the sons involved.

Easy Chocolate Covered Red, White, And Blue Strawberries
Strawberries, washed and dried
Blue sugar, edible glitter, or sprinkles (blue sugar is shown in the picture)
1. Place blue sugar in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl melt the chocolate, either in the microwave for two minute intervals, stirring in between until totally melted, in a mini crockpot set to low (this will keep it warm for some time and allow you more time to work), or using a double boiler on the stove top. Holding the stem, dip the lower two thirds of the strawberries in the melted white chocolate. Then, dip the lower third of the strawberries in the blue sugar or spoon it onto the strawberry.
3. Place on wax paper or a Silpat and refrigerate until completely cool.
