DIY: Patriotic Strawberries

So I whipped up some yummy treats to take into the office today and my goal was to have this up earlier...but I didn't even get around to typing it out last night. #fail.

I wanted to share with you one of THE EASIEST desserts I've made for the last couple patriotic parties we've had. I initially saw the idea on this Pin!

White Chocolate to Melt
Double Boiler Pan (or whatever you use to melt your chocolate)
Blue Sugar
Wax Paper
Condiment Cup, bowl or plate

Rinse off your strawberries and make sure they're dry.
Lay out a piece of wax paper.
Empty out your blue sugar into a cup, bowl or plate. (I use a condiment cup because it's the perfect size for the strawberries I'm decorating)
Melt your chocolate so that it's nice and smooth (mine was being a PITA, but I made it work...kinda)
Dip one strawberry into the white chocolate and then immediately dip it into the blue sugar before laying it on the wax paper to set.
Complete with as many strawberries as you have, need or want!

That's it!

If you're unsure of which white chocolate to use, might I suggest Nestle? I've tried Ghirardelli, Hershey's and Nestle. Nstle is by far my favorite and the easiest to work with, IMO. Of course, you could probably use white chocolate bark just like you would for pretzels if you have that on hand.

As always, if you make these share a pic with me or a link so I can check them out!
You want to know why I didn't get around to doing this post last night?!

Because...I was too caught up in this book!

It probably dragged on a little too long for my liking, but they made some things happen that wouldn't have if they had ended it so I guess it was all good. Now I'm trying to pace myself before I dive into the next one, Walking Disaster from Travis' POV.

Just a reminder to follow me on Goodreads to keep up with my reading! Leave me a link to your Goodreads account so I can follow you too!!!

Have a Happy and safe 4th of July! I'm posting about my Cara Box tomorrow (since I got mine Monday) and then My Summer Must Have Giveaway on Friday!!
