While the 4th of July is a celebration of Independence, it’s also a day most people gather and have a cookout before the fireworks. What will you bring to your gathering this year? I have 2 easy crowd favorites for you.

First up are the strawberries. I love seeing strawberries become available because it’s a sign of summer. These white chocolate covered strawberries are great because picky kids think they are getting candy but they are getting a little food that provides nutritional value too!

When washing my produce I use my regular non toxic all purpose cleaner. The food lasts longer and you can visibly see the difference in how clean they become.  A picture doesn’t do justice to the difference so you’ll just have to trust me 😉

Red, White & Blue Strawberries

A fun and festive 4th of July treat.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Wash and dry the strawberries
  2. Add blue sugar to a narrow bowl or cup so you can get it deep for the dip
  3. Melt the chocolate per package directions
  4. Dip strawberry into white chocolate so about 1/3 of the top is still showing and then immediately dip the bottom third into sugar
  5. Place on wax paper or baking mat until hardened

Now for the Oreo pops. I’ll be honest and my tastes have changed since further cleaning up what we eat and these don’t taste the same to me anymore but I still really want to have one because who doesn’t love an Oreo?

Red, White & Blue Oreo Pops

  • Servings: Roughly a package of Oreo's
  • Difficulty: easy

A fun and festive 4th of July treat.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Lay out a large area of wax paper
  2. Pull/twist apart your cookies
  3. Melt a small amount of the chocolate per package directions
  4. Dip the stick in a little of the chocolate and then place between cookie pieces and put cookie back together. Be careful not to push too hard. Do this for all cookies. Let the sticks dry, this depends on the temp/humidity of your area so time will vary.
  5. Melt the rest of the chocolate in a deep bowl and dip the cookie. Be careful not to shake or tap too much as the stick may come loose. Place on wax paper. You can do a handful and then go back and add the sprinkles before the chocolate dries. Work in batches like this to make it a little more efficient.
