Whipping up a batch of red, white, and blue chocolate-covered strawberries that pay tribute to our great and wonderful nation? Still absurdly easy! It's really just a matter of knowing how to work a microwave. So round up all your ingredients, be generous with your sprinkles, and remember to share these with other people. Or don't... the cool thing about America is that you can pretty much do whatever you want.
- 4 bars of white chocolate
- Patriotic sprinkles of your choosing
- A drizzle of canola oil
- Parchment paper
1. Break up your bars of white chocolate into pieces, and place them in a microwave-safe bowl. Drizzle them with a teeny bit of canola oil so that the chocolate doesn't stick, and then place the bowl in the microwave for 30 second intervals until the chocolate is melted.
2. Once the white chocolate is completely melted, hold your strawberry by the stem and dip it into the bowl. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off the fruit.
3. Immediately add on any sprinkles or toppings of your choice. The more sprinkles, the better (duh).
4. Place your decked out strawberries on a piece of parchment paper. When you're finished with your patriotic pieces of art, put everything in the refrigerator for an hour until the chocolate hardens.
5. Serve, and enjoy!
