Red White and Blue Strawberries--let's celebrate something

July 4th Strawberries
These are so pretty and perfect for July 4th, Memorial day, Veterans day, flag day and election day too.

You will NEED:
1 pint strawberries at least
 1 pkg. white chocolate chips or white dipping chocolate (bark)- found with baking supplies
 Blue sanding sugar or sprinkles (cookie decorating sugar)

Strawberries, washed and dried
White chocolate, sweet milk chocolate, or dark or both if you prefer a variety
Blue sugar, edible glitter, or sprinkles

Place blue sugar in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave on 50% power for two minutes.  Stir until the bowl is no longer warm.  Then microwave for 30 second intervals at 50% power, stirring after each, until the chocolate is completely melted. Dip the lower two thirds of the strawberries in the melted white or chocolate chocolate.  Then, dip the lower third of the strawberries in the blue sugar or sprinkles (or spoon it) onto the strawberry.  Place on wax paper until completely cool.
