Red, White and Blue Strawberries

Are you looking for a simple and sweet treat for the Memorial Day weekend?  Give Buddy Valastro’s, or The Cake Boss, strawberries a try.

Red, White and Blue Strawberries, Adapted

  • large, sweet strawberries with the stems still attached
  • good quality white chocolate chips, such as Ghiradelli (I prefer not to use wafers or the bars as the chips are easier to melt)
  • blue sparkling sugar

First of all remember white chocolate is trickier to melt than its dark chocolate counterparts. Technically, white chocolate is not a chocolate, because it doesn’t have chocolate solids. Any moisture and heating the chocolate too high can cause the chocolate to seize. Trust me I have done this and it can turn into a lumpy mess!

Line a tray with wax paper. I use my copper double boiler to melt the chips. Heat a small amount of water to simmer in the bottom of the double boiler as you do not want the bowl to touch the water. Add the bowl with the chips in it and stir gently until melted.

Dip 2/3’s of each strawberry and allow the excess chocolate to drip off. I even rub the bottom of the berries against the bowl so there is not too much chocolate. Dip in the colored sugar and place on waxed paper to dry thoroughly.

These are best eaten the same day you make them.

    • Thanks Sheryl – I experimented with this batch and I have to admit over a couple of days I ate them. Need to make more! You do need juicy sweet strawberries, the white chocolate melts in your mouth and the sugar crystals add a little crunch 🙂
