These patriotic 4th of July chocolate covered strawberries are simple to make, look great, and always taste delicious.
In our house, any excuse to make chocolate covered strawberries is a good excuse. And with the 4th of July rapidly approaching it only made sense to create some patriotic 4th of July chocolate covered strawberries! What I like the most besides the fact that it is strawberries and chocolate is that this is easy. I love recipes that are easy to make but look good. These look patriotic and they are perfect to take to a 4th of July BBQ.
4th of July Chocolate Covered Strawberries
1 container of fresh strawberries
1 bag of Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers
1 bag of red candy melts
1 bag of blue candy melts
1 marinade injector
1 small bottle of tequila
1 cookie sheet
2 pots for a double boiler
Wash the berries and dry thoroughly
Place the berries onto a baking sheet fitted with parchment paper
Using the injector, inject about 1-2 Tsp of tequila into the berries
Place the berries into the fridge for 30 minutes
Add some water into 1 of the pots and place on the stove at medium heat
Place the top pot on top and add in the white chocolate melting wafers
Using a rubber spatula, mix until the chocolate is fully melted
Dip the strawberries, 1 at a time, into the chocolate until coated up to the top
Place dipped berry onto parchment paper
Once all berries are dipped, scoop the remaining chocolate into 1 of the piping bags
Cut the tip off and drizzle the white chocolate on the berries
Wash out the top pot and dry thoroughly before melting the red candy melts
Repeat melting steps like explained with the white chocolate
Add the melted red candy melts into a piping bag, cutting the tip off and drizzle
Repeat steps with the blue candy melts
