It’s July! Time for corn on the cob, lazy Sundays, beach trips, fireworks and family vacations! Last year I showed you pictures of revolutionary berries but never showed you how to make them. I got the original idea from Disney Family Fun, but their recipe used white chocolate chips, and I found an even easier way to make them, with Wilton Candy Melts. These are perfect for taking to a BBQ or Picnic because they take about 5 minutes to make, are low cost, and are relatively healthy at approximately 32 calories per berry. Let’s get started!
1 Carton washed and thoroughly dried (this is important!) strawberries
1 Bag of Wilton Candy Melts, white, vanilla flavored. (You can find these at Michael’s Crafts, Walmart, Jo-Ann, etc.)
1 Container of Blue Decorating Sugar (found in the baking aisle by other sprinkles)
Two Small Bowls for Melting and Sugaring
1 Fork for Mixing Melts
Let’s Get Started
1) Pour about 3/4 cup candy melts into a small, deep bowl. You’ll want deep over shallow so you can dip the berry in and get it about 3/4 coated.
5) Keep going, until you’ve covered all of your strawberries! Easy, right? Let the berries harden (about 1 hour unrefrigerated, 30 mins refrigerated) and then enjoy their crunchy, sweet yumminess! Imagine how many different ways you could do this – pink and blue for a baby shower, green and white for Christmas… what a great snack! If you try them this 4th of July, let me know what you think!
