Juicy strawberries are dipped in white chocolate, filled with sweetened cream cheese, and topped with a blueberry and an American flag in these cute Patriotic Stuffed Strawberries, the perfect treat for any 4th of July celebration!
Independence Day ranks right up there as one of my favorite holidays. To a fan of summertime, parades, fireworks, and all-out American pride, it just doesn’t get much better than July 4th.
As with any holiday, the best part is, arguably, the food. Whether we’re talking about grilled burgers and hotdogs, BBQ and potato salad and beans, or cool salads and savory pasta salads, 4th of July eats can’t be beat! But the highlight of any Independence Day buffet would have to be the red, white, and blue sweet treats.
And speaking of sweet treats, how festive are these Patriotic Stuffed Strawberries? Big, juicy strawberries are hollowed out, trimmed at the bottom (to help them stand up), and then dipped in smooth white chocolate. While the chocolate sets, a simple, sweetened cream cheese mixture (okay, it’s actually my world-famous Classic Cream Cheese Frosting) gets whipped up. That creamy goodness is piped into the strawberries (I use a plastic baggie, because I’m fancy that way), topped with a plump blueberry, and then finished off with fun sprinkles (I only had blue sparkling sugar, but how cute would RW+B nonpareils or jimmies be?). And don’t forget the American flag pick!
The result is these cute, yummy berries, bursting with patriotic color and summer flavor! I mean, how popular would you be if you brought these to a 4th of July get-together? Nobody has to know how easy they were to make…all they need to know is that the buffet table has a new centerpiece. 😉
So Happy (Almost) Birthday, America! Here’s to you, here’s to sweet summer berries, and here’s to the Stars & Stripes…forever. 🙂
