I saw this idea on food tv, compliments of Rachel Ray a year or so back, and I filed it away for the next time I
A) Had Strawberries and
B) The 4th was approaching.
OK, so the 4th of July is just a little under a month away, but completing this project allowed me to
A) Get it out of my head, and into my hands and
B) Eat a chocolate covered strawberry....or three.
I think it's sort of self explanatory, but....I never know who or what I'll be a year from now, so...
Self...if you forget, this is what you did:
1. Melt some white chocolate.
2. Dip your (cleaned) strawberry into the melted chocolate.
3. Dip your (not dry yet) chocolate covered strawberry into sprinkles, leave some white chocolate showing to get the red, white, and blue action.
I used an Easter egg half to hold the sprinkles so that I could swirl the strawberry around, it gave me a deeper pool of sprinkles to dip in (without having to load a ton of sprinkles in a bowl) so that I could make the even line closer to the top....as opposed to sprinkling the sprinkles. Plus, it allowed the Easter eggs to meet the 4th of July fruits, and they all lived happily ever after, one giant family of holidays.
