Step 1 | How to Wash Strawberries
- Place the strawberries in a collander and wash them thoroughly.
- Dry the strawberries with a paper towel.
- Allow the strawberries to dry completely before attempting to dip them in the melted chocolate.
Step 2 | How to Melt Chocolate
- Place the candy melting chips in a microwave-safe bowl and then place the bowl in the microwave using the low setting. Heat for 30 seconds interval at a time.
- Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the chocolate. One of the biggest mistakes people make with using the microwave is, they forget to stir the chocolate after each interval. Chocolate pieces can retain their shape until you stir them.
- If you don't stir, you risk burning the chocolate.
- Return the chocolate back to the microwave and repeat with another 10 to 15 seconds until the chocolate is completely melted.
- In just a few minutes you'll have perfectly beautiful melted chocolate for dipping.

- Dip the strawberries in the melted white chocolate but only halfway.
Step 3 | Dip Strawberries in Colored Sugar
- Immediately roll in the colored blue sanding sugar.
- Allow the red white and blue patriotic strawberries to dry on parchment paper completely before serving.
