Patriotic Strawberries

The 4th of July is a big day with family, friends, fireworks, fun, and of course, food.

Here’s one of the finger foods I’ll be taking this year!

Patriotic Strawberries Recipe

2 cartons of fairly large strawberries
1 box blue jello mix

White Fruit Dip:
1 cup plain Chobani yogurt
1/2 packet sugar free/fat free vanilla pudding mix
1 packet Splenda or Truvia
1/8 tsp vanilla extract

Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Wash the strawberries. Once they are dry, dip the strawberries in the white fruit dip and then roll the tip end in the dry blue jello powder. Place strawberry on the wax sheet and repeat. Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator until the coating is hardened, which is about 15 minutes.

The original recipe calls for white chocolate and blue sprinkles, but I like how Taralynn at Undressed Skeleton gives these patriotic strawberries a sliming twist to something sweet.
