4th of July Strawberries! {SO GOOD}

Happy Fourth of July my lovely blogging friends! I love you all so much! First off, I would like to give a big THANK YOU to all of our troops out there who are either currently fighting or who have fought in the past for our freedom. I am sincerely thankful for the each of you. Thank you for showing us what true love really means:

"There is no greater love than to lay down ones life for his friends."
John 15:13

And to my blogging friends, You guys motivate me more and more to keep coming back to this whole blogging scene. I am thankful for the friendships that I have built with the many of you. I hope today is filled with lots of fireworks, time spent with close friends and loved ones, and also FOOD! duh! On that note, let me share with you my most favorite 4th of July recipe to date...


mmmmmm. Dang.

...The best part about them?
There SUPER simple to make. 
I'm not kidding, like really easy.
And there picture pretty. {instagram, what else?!}
AAAAND they taste amazing.
and there awesome.
Okay, moving on.

Heres what you need: 
1 pound of strawberries
1 12 ounce package of white chocolate chips
1 small container of blue sprinkles {I stuck with Betty Crocker, holler!}

First, prepare your ingredients. Pour out the container of blue sprinkles into a bowl alongside the plate of strawberries. This will make it easy as you are dipping your chocolate and then covering it with the sprinkles.

Next, melt the white chocolate chips in a double broiler, stirring constantly. When the white chocolate is melted, dip the strawberries 3/4 of the way up from the bottom. 

Next, dip the strawberries in the bowl of blue sprinkles, covering half of the chocolate in blue. 

Place on wax paper {or on a plate if you prefer}, and let it cool.

***NOTE: If you do not have a double broiler {I didn't!} then simply just fill a saucepan 1/2 the way up with water, place it over the stove and let it boil, and then place a glass bowl over the boiling water and add the chocolate chips to melt.


***ONE MORE NOTE: I highly do not recommend using a microwave to melt the chocolate chips, because literally every time I have done that, the chocolate chips burned. So yeah. Just a warning!

Happy Independence day blogging friends, I hope you enjoyed this post! I love food! and fireworks!
