The 4th of July is almost always comprised of social gatherings including BBQs and potlucks! When I was younger, I use to live in a cul de sac where the neighborhood was really child-friendly. Every 4th of July, we would block off the entire neighborhood and hold a huge potluck BBQ that would end in lighting off an obscene amount of fireworks into the darkness. Did anyone else ever use sparklers to write their names in the sidewalk as a kid? It’s so entertaining!

Now that I am old enough to have the responsibility of contributing to the potlucks I attend (instead of taking credit for what my parents bring) I am always searching for fun dishes to share with my friends and family! So, what can you make that feeds a large amount of people, doesn’t burn a hole in your wallet, and is bursting with color?

Chocolate covered strawberries.

Not just chocolate covered strawberries but holiday-themed chocolate covered strawberries :) I mean, come on, it makes it so much better when you make your dishes look festive for the occasion! Of course, homemade salsa, guacamole, marinated meats, and potato salads are so delicious and essential to any picnic or outdoor gathering, but I can’t help but swoon over dishes that relate to the specific holiday.

And the best part: making this dessert is incredibly simple and quick!

Red, White, and Blue Themed Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

1 pound of ripe strawberries
1 bag of white chocolate candy melts (or a bag of white chocolate chips)
1 cup of confectioner’s sugar
1 tablespoon of milk
1 tablespoon of light corn syrup
Blue food coloring
Wax paper

Wash and completely dry the strawberries. In a pot, simmer 1-2 inches of water and place a glass or metal bowl on top of the pot to create a double boiler. Slowly melt half a bag of the candy melts. When the melts are completely melted, remove from heat, add the second half of the candy melts, and incorporate until smooth. If the mixture has cooled down too much to melt everything nicely, simmer the pot of water again and let everything warm up a little bit.

Once the white chocolate is completed melted, dip strawberries about 3/4 of the way and then set on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper for chocolate to harden. After you’ve dipped all the strawberries, in a separate bowl, mix together the confectioner’s sugar, corn syrup and milk. Then add as much blue food coloring (two drops at at time) to get the right shade of blue you want. If you want a thicker icing, use less milk. And if you want a thinner icing, add more milk.

Then spoon icing into a piping bag (I used a ziplock bag). If you are using a ziplock bag, cut a very small hole in the corner. Once the chocolate on the strawberries is completely hardened, drizzle the icing back and forth on the strawberries until about half of the white chocolate area is covered. If it’s easier, hold the strawberry by the stem/top as you drizzle so you can rotate it easily to make smoother lines. Let the icing set, then grab one for yourself, take a big bite, and enjoy!

What is everyone else making for the 4th of July? I’d love to hear!

  2. These look like the perfect thing to take to a fourth of July party! So adorable.

  3. These are so pretty! I’m not American, so I could skip the blue for Canada Day (tomorrow!). Hehe, love it!

  9. What a terrific 4th of July idea! I am definitely going to try this. My kids love to dip strawberries, and the stripes are the perfect touch.

  10. i bet they taste great

  11. “Life tastes like food” is a wonderful title for this blog! Wow, your photos are amazing. So amazing I am getting ready to run up to the chocolate store now. Super Job! Thanks for sharing your incredible strawberry creations today. Awesome!

  12. I love these! For and after-church potluck, do you think these would hold up well in the fridge over night? I would rather make the night before rather than before going to church.

    • sorry….for AN after-church potluck

      • Hi Theresa! I’m so glad you want to make them! I actually never put them in the fridge and they kept for a couple days! If you dry the strawberries very well before dipping them, and then let the chocolate harden back at room temperature, they should be fine. It’s only if the strawberries are a little wet before you dip them that the bottom of the chocolate will have a little strawberry juice on them the next day. Even if that happens, it doesn’t ruin the strawberries or taste though! Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for reading!! :)

  13. they look sensational.

  14. wow, very exotic colour scheme used!! The blue against the white choco seems to stir up my choco appetite.

    Not making anything on 4th Jul myself. But always rather to taste other’s creation!

  15. Love it! I am planning a wedding right now, a retro little party, and these would be adorable desserts!

  92. Just looking at them my mouth waters :D

  93. Looks so yummy :) and perfect for a 4th July feast

  94. What a fun blog! and a great idea for strawberries. I was going to just throw them on a platter with oreo cookies and a tub of cool whip but this will deftinately “dress” them up. I have some patriotic sprinkles I think I may use instead of the blue icing…or maybe a bit of both! Oh and maybe dip the oreos too?
    Meg B.

    • Ooo, patriotic sprinkles sound lovely!! And dipped oreos sound SO delicious :) How about crushing up some of the oreos and dipping the chocolate strawberries in crushed oreos instead of the blue icing??? That sounds like it could be dangerously good :) Let me know! Thanks for reading!

  99. I saw this idea last year somewhere & used blue sanding sugar from William Sonoma. While I love cooking my patience for dessert-making is pretty minimal so that was perfect for me. That’s said, the swirly piped icing looks even prettier!

  105. I like chocolate separately and strawberries separately, but these look unbelievable! The photos are good enough to hang as posters in the kitchen! :)

  106. OH, that is ADORABLE! So very easy too. :)

  107. beautiful pictures of the strawberries, i “shared” it on Facebook. ;)

  108. Strawberries look wonderful?I tried to do the same with dark chocolate, but for some reasons it didn’t want to stick to strawberries?Is there any trick?

    • Were the strawberries a little wet? You have to dry them off completely after you wash them or the chocolate has a hard time sticking sometimes. Also, if the chocolate is too thick or doesn’t seem to melt nicely, add the smallest bit of shortening to it–that should make the chocolate smoother. Good luck! :)

  109. wow. those chocolate covered strawberries are so patriotic! i love them! although im not American, i may steal this recipe for Canada’s birthday next year.

  110. creative and cute.. :) very different!! not food but art :)

  111. After working in a place that sold chocolate covered strawberries, I must say I LOVE THIS IDEA and would have been a huge it there.

    So, thanks for the super cute post! :)

  154. These look so lovely!

  155. those are so cute!

  156. They’re very pretty and festive. I would love for the blue to be darker, as it’s more of a navy blue on the flag. But still, these are recognizable for the red-white-and-blue theme. I wonder if adding a little black to the blue food dye would make the blue darker?

    • I would try adding more blue food coloring first to see how dark of a blue you can get it. If that doesn’t work then yes, you can add the SMALLEST amount of black–a little goes a long way with black, so be careful! I hope that helps :)

  157. These look so cool. I might try them in Aussi colours on Australia Day…Thanks for the inspiration, and look out for my blog for mine…

  158. I just made this for tomorrow’s celebrations! Mine are not as pretty as yours but I’m sure they’ll taste delicious! I think next time I’ll just dip the tip in the blue icing or dye some of the white chocolate blue so they don’t look like a 5 year-old made them. ;)

    • haha I’m sure they look great! And dipping the tip in blue actually sounds like a fabulous idea! You should try the icing lines again another time because I promise you will get the hang of it :) Thanks for making the recipe and checking out this post!

  161. Wow fantastic image, great photography. I also love strawberries and chocolate, but this twist is fantastic. I think that we are all familiar with this idea done with all chocolate, so what really stands out is your color choices. Starting with beautifully ripened strawberries, the red just jumps up at you and its the first color mentioned in our American flag. The red is handipped into a ivory white pool of sugary lovelyness. This white sets us up with a clean field to lay our final color on. Stripes of blue. But this no ordinary blue. This is like a cornflower blue. Its a a little bit of sky mixed with a rich creamy white. Its actually my favorite part. :-) thank you for including a pic. This color combo is definately worth duplicating.

  162. Good

  163. Those strawberries look delicious! Definitely going to try these – thanks for the recipe :)

  209. Hi,

    How did you get such white chocolate? In Australia, our white chocolate is more yellowy? Is it just whiter in USA?

    Thanks,
    jodie

    • Hi Jodie! I just used regular Wilton’s white chocolate candy melts. I’ve done the same with white chocolate chips and the color has turned out similar as well. It’d be really interesting to find out if the color of white chocolate in Australia vs. the US is different! Who would have thought. Hope this helps! :)

  210. Can you make these the day before?

    • Hi Kim!

      You can definitely make these the day before. If your house is cool enough, you can just leave them out overnight. However, if it get’s really warm in your house, you can store them in the fridge overnight too. Let me know if you have any questions! :)
