Looking for a quick and easy, no bake dessert to bring to your next 4th of July party, BBQ, or any patriotic holiday? You only need a few minutes of prep time and 3 ingredients to whip up these Red, White, and Blue Strawberries and everyone will love them.

These patriotic berries are a perfect treat any time of year and can be made with different flavors and colors. You can even count these as a healthier dessert option because they’re made with fruit and it’s better to eat these than a cookie or slice of cake, right!? 😉

I love making themed foods for the holidays because it’s so festive and fun. Another red, white and blue dessert that I love making for patriotic celebrations is my Red, White, and Blue Cheesecake Bites.

These berries are light and refreshing and make the perfect dessert on hot summer days or whenever you are craving sweet juicy strawberries.

Key Ingredients

  • Strawberries: Fresh strawberries are a must. You want your berries to be ripe and have a firm stem on them so they are easy to dip. It’s key that your strawberries are dry before dipping them into the chocolate so they chocolate sticks to the berries. Rinse them and use paper towels to pat them completely dry. I always try to use large strawberries if possible.
  • White candy melts: Any type of white melting chocolate, white chocolate chips or almond bar will also work but candy melts are the easiest to melt.
  • Blue sprinkles: I love using blue sanding sugar but you could also use festive 4th of July jimmies or nonpareils.

How To Make Red, White, and Blue Strawberries

Prepare baking sheet: Line a baking sheet or cookie sheet with parchment paper, aluminum foil, or wax paper. Set aside.

Add sprinkles to small bowl: Place the blue sprinkles in a small deep bowl. Set aside.

Melt chocolate: Place candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals until completely melted and smooth. Be sure not to overheat. If your chocolate appears to be dry, add a teaspoon of neutral oil or coconut oil.

Dip berries: Dip each strawberry 3/4 of the way in the melted white chocolate and gently use the side of the bowl to remove any excess drip. Dip 1/3 of each berry in the sprinkles and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all of your strawberries are decorated.

Let berries dry: Let the berries sit in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or on the counter to harden. Add to a serving tray and enjoy!

How to Melt White Chocolate Without a Microwave?

That’s easy! If you don’t have a microwave you can melt the chocolate on the stove in a double boiler.

Add chocolate to a double boiler or fill a pot with a few inches of water and place a heat proof bowl over the pot. Set the stove to medium heat and let the water boil. Add the candy melts or white chocolate chips to the bowl and stir as it softens. If the chocolate appears dry, add a teaspoon of butter or oil and continue string until smooth and melted.

Pro Tips

  • Rinse and dry strawberries: You want your strawberries to be dry before dipping. This will help make the chocolate stick to the strawberries. Gently wash the berries and pat with a paper towel.
  • Avoid dry melted chocolate: Add a teaspoon of coconut oil, butter, or any neutral oil to the candy melts so the chocolate doesn’t dry out. It will also make the chocolate melt smoother.
  • Neatly add sprinkles: Use a spoon to add the sprinkles to the chocolate dipped berries. This will make them look neater and the chocolate won’t smear.
  • Use a small dish: Use a small deep dish for the melted chocolate, this will help you dip to coat 3/4 of each berry.

Red, White, and Blue Strawberries Recipe Variations

  • Blue sprinkles: Swap the blue sprinkles for mini blue M&Ms, 4th of July themed sprinkles, or use blue candy melts.
  • Blue chocolate: Instead of dipping the strawberries in blue sprinkles, use blue candy melts or add blue food coloring to the white chocolate to make blue chocolate.
  • Candy melts: You can use white chocolate chips, melting wafers, chopped up white chocolate bar, or almond bark.
  • Make these for all occasion: Make these chocolate dipped strawberries all year round by swapping the blue sprinkles with any themed sprinkles. Use rainbow sprinkles for a birthday, pink sprinkles for Valentine’s Day, or pastel sprinkles for Easter.

Leftovers & Storage

To-store: Place leftovers in an airtight sealed container or wrap dish with plastic wrap, Store in a cool dry place at room temperature for up to 4-5 days. You could also place the berries in the refrigerator but they will start to sweat after a day or two. 

To-freeze: Place berries in an airtight container or heavy-duty ziplock bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw, let berries sit out on the counter for a few hours.
