When the flag is flying for a national holiday, you need a treat that’s as patriotic as the occasion. Try these easy dipped strawberries for a fresh twist on red, white and blue!
I know most of you have tried chocolate dipped strawberries -- but have you had frosting dipped strawberries? They're even better! And there's no worries about melting the chocolate or having your chocolate seize up from moisture on the strawberries.
These Red, White, and Blue Strawberries
are dipped in vanilla frosting and then blue sanding sugar for an easy and fast patriotic treat. Strawberries are so good this time of year, and this is great way to use them!
When I realized that I was out of blue sanding sugar, I made my own. It’s so simple. Just add some food coloring to regular granulated sugar and mix it well. You can make it as bright or pale as you want it the color.
Betty Crocker Whipped Vanilla Frosting is perfect for dipping the strawberries in.
Melt it in the microwave for about 5-10 seconds to get it to a dipping consistency and start dipping away. You want to go about 2/3 of the way down the strawberry.
Then immediately dip it in your blue sanding sugar just 1/3 of the way to make beautiful even stripes.
Let the strawberries set in the refrigerator until you're ready to enjoy them. This is an impressive treat that literally takes no time at all — and they’re pure eye candy for your table!
