Patriotic Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I found these strawberries over at Real Mom Kitchen. Laura is a friend of my mom, and that woman knows how to cook. I love her blog because her recipes really are for a real mom. Nothing too fancy. Just how I like it! When I saw this post I knew I had to make some. I'm not a huge white chocolate fan, but these are just too cute! I did some red, white and blue for the USA and some red and white for the Canada girls!

I used white chocolate apeels, but white chocolate chips would be fine to use as well. Melt them in the microwave on high for one minute, and then at half power stirring well every 30 seconds until melted. Once the you dip the strawberries keep holding them for just a few seconds and then sprinkle away. I tried rolling the tip in a bowl of sprinkles, but it made the chocolate lumpy. I say, just sprinkle them on. Obviously these are so versatile for any color theme you have!

So cute & they sound so yummy too! I am a white chocolate fan so these are perfect for me - I will have to make them soon "just because"!

I made fruit kakob flags -
