Ingredients for 4th of july chocolate covered strawberries

What You’ll Need

You will need just 3 ingredients to make these 4th of July chocolate dipped strawberries!

  • Fresh strawberries – Choose ripe, sweet red strawberries that are firm.
  • White chocolate – Use either white chocolate almond bark or white candy melts. If you want truly white color (not off-white or cream colored), look for melts that are labeled “bright white”, such as these bright white candy melts.
  • Blue tinted sugar – You can find this at craft and cake decorating stores, as well as online, such as this blue sugar.

What’s The Best Chocolate To Use?

I recommend using either white chocolate almond bark or white chocolate candy melts. These melt smoothly and easily and adhere to the berries well. They also keep their molded shape, and won’t melt as easily as white chocolate chips.

If you want to incorporate some white chocolate chips, melt them very gently, so as not to scorch. Then combine this with some melted white chocolate almond bark or white chocolate candy melts.

How to Make White Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

Are you ready for some patriotic food fun?! Here’s how to make red, white, and blue strawberries:

  • Melt the chocolate. Melt your chocolate in the microwave at short intervals, stirring frequently – take care to not let it get too hot and scorch. You could also set up a double boiler on the stovetop.
  • Dip the strawberries. Hold the strawberries at the top and dip the bottom 2/3 into the melted chocolate. Be sure to keep some of the red showing at the top.
  • Dip into the blue sugar. Dip the tip of the berry into the blue sugar.
  • Let set. Place the dipped strawberries on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Chill in the fridge until set.

Decorating ideas

These white chocolate dipped strawberries can be decorated in many ways – not just with the blue sugar. You can easily adapt these to any holiday or celebration by changing the color of the sugar or switching up the toppings. Here are a few ideas:

  • Drizzle another color of melts over the white chocolate
  • Sprinkles – celebrate graduations, bridal showers, baby showers, retirements, birthdays, team spirit, etc.
  • Chocolate curls
  • Minced nuts
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Cookie crumbs
  • Toasted coconut
  • Crushed candy bars

And see those shiny little stars on the strawberries above? I added some edible star sprinkles, for even more patriot fun!

Can I Make These in Advance?

Due to the moisture in strawberries, I recommend making these no more than a few hours before serving.

I tried making them a day ahead of time once and didn’t have great results – the blue sugar started to get weepy. They still tasted delicious but didn’t look quite as beautiful.

But these strawberries don’t take much effort or time to make, so just make them a few hours before party time. Then store them in the fridge, uncovered. If you place a cover on them, it will trap moisture inside.

  • strawberries
  • white candy melts or white chocolate bark If you want bright white color, look for those labeled “super white” or “bright white”.
  • blue tinted sugar


  • Melt the white chocolate bark or candy melts in the microwave in short intervals, stirring frequently, taking care to not scorch. Or use a double boiler method on the stovetop.
  • Dip the bottom 2/3 of the strawberry into the melted candy melts/white chocolate, leaving a stripe of red strawberry showing at the top.
  • Then dip just the tip of the berry into the blue sugar.
  • Place dipped strawberries on a rimmed baking sheet that is lined with wax or parchment paper. To speed up the hardening process, place the baking sheet in the fridge for a quicker set. Store refrigerated, uncovered.


Due to the moisture in the berries, I do not recommend making these more than a few hours before serving, as the blue sugar will start to get "weepy".

      1. also when I tried to “dip” the end in the sugar it just smushed the choc-I used a spoon to pour it over the end. would not call this experience easy at all. But it is cute.

      2. I’m sorry to hear you didn’t have such a great experience with this. All I can say is that I’ve made quite a few batches of these with our kids and we don’t have any problems. Did you use white chocolate or candy melts? Because white chocolate will be more runny and not set as well. And when you dip into the blue sugar, just gently roll the strawberry tip in the sugar. Don’t smush the tip in.

    i LOVE this idea. i’m going to a BBQ 2 hours away and debating making these. i think they can survive the trip – and it’ll be easy to make while i’m getting ready in the AM. much easier than cake or brownies or cupcakes!

  2. I’ve never seen strawberries look so fancy. What a cute recipe for Fourth of July. I rounded up a couple of recipes for a Fourth of July Foodie Roundup and your recipe is on there. If you would like to see it: http://asnailslife.wordpress.com/2011/06/29/july-4th-foodie-round-up/

    1. Hi Melissa – I’m glad you found me, too! To find the melts you want, you need to search for “super white candy melts” or “bright white candy melts”. I got mine online at Cake Art – also on Amazon and craft stores like Joanne’s and Michael’s.
