{Bake} Fourth of July | The Outlaw Mom’s Coconut Sprinkle Strawberries

July 2, 2011 in All Posts, Bake

It’s already the first day of the three-day Fourth of July weekend, and I’ve only gotten to my Coconut Sprinkle Strawberries, but none of the other sweet patriotic treats on my list.

It’s not too late for you to try this fun twist on the traditional red, white and blue strawberry before the weekend’s through!

Here’s how to scrub, dip, roll and press your way to these sweet fuzzy berry treats.

Ingredients

Red

White

Blue

Step 1

Scrub your strawberries clean and chill.

Step 2

Dip your clean, chilled strawberries in melted white chocolate.

Step 3

Roll the bottom of your dipped strawberries in the sprinkles.

Step 4

Press the shredded coconut onto the undipped portion of the strawberries.

Voila!

The color possibilities are endless.

Try:

  • white chocolate and pink sprinkles for a girl’s baby shower or milk chocolate and blue sprinkles for a boy’s baby shower;
  •  dark chocolate and just the coconut for a dramatic effect; or
  • pastel sprinkles over white chocolate for colorful springtime berries.
