Champagne Soaked Red, White & Blue Chocolate-dipped Strawberries
Our friends invited us to pool party on the 4th of July recently and we wanted to test out a dessert recipe that was both alcohol infused and patriotic. We had seen these red, white and blue chocolate-dipped strawberries and thought, what goes perfect with fresh strawberries? Champagne!
1 pacakge of fresh strawberries
1 bottle of champagne
1 canning jar
1 bag of white melting chocolate
Bottle of blue sugar sprinkles
Fill your canning jar with strawberries and fill with champagne. Allow to set for at least 24 hours. If you are in a pinch for time, you can poke small holes in the strawberries with a tooth pick to allow the champagne to penetrate faster.
Pat dry the strawberries
Melt your white chocolate in a small pan.
Dip your strawberries into the chocolate. Place down and let the chocolate set a bit (30-45 seconds). If you dip it immediately into the sprinkles your chocolate will bunch up.
Enjoy! These do not hold very well. About 2-3 days in the fridge tops, so only make as much as you need.
