When I was in high school we had an annual 4th of July party at my parents’ friend’s home. One of the guests brought these strawberries and I instantly fell in love. They are so easy to make but there is a secret to get the white chocolate dipped strawberries to look nice.

Dipping white chocolate strawberries is very easy, but make sure you’ve washed the strawberries long before dipping them so that no moisture remains on the berries. If moisture is on the berries the white chocolate wont stick as well.

How to Make Dipped Berries Look Better

Make sure you also let the excess drip off of the berries as much as you can and hold them up in your hand for 3 seconds so that the white chocolate can be a little more set when you roll it in the sprinkles. If you move too quickly between the chocolate and the sprinkles, the chocolate will smoosh everywhere and wont be as pretty.

Doesn’t that juicy berry look delicious?! Tell me you don’t want to dig in as well!

Red White and Blue Strawberries

We’ve found that the sprinkles the look the best and don’t bleed as bad are these Red Wilton Sprinkles,   and the blue ones as well.

You could also stick the berries on cute wooden skewers or even stand the skewers in little pots of beans, but I prefer to use a deviled egg tray. The berries fit right in and it holds them in place without the berries bumping around and hitting each other.

  • Sunny Anderson made some exactly like these except she rolled them in Pop Rocks instead of sprinkles. A real surprise in your mouth when you bite into them.
