Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

July 4th Strawberries

I saw these on Facebook yesterday and just HAD to make them.  Thank You DealiciousMom for this simple recipe.  I modified it a little so I'll give you the recipe we used.  These are so easy.  I melted the chocolate and the 5 year old did the rest.

You will need:
White Chocolate (we used the candiquik)
1/2 C sugar
blue food coloring

Was and thoroughly dry strawberries.  Keep on stems for a handle to dip.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler or microwave (make sure to stir every 30 seconds if using microwave)
Mix together sugar and 4 drops of food coloring either in a baggie or bowl with lid.  Shake well until all clumps are gone.

Once chocolate is completely melted and creamy, let cool for two minutes.  Dip strawberries 2/3 of the way in chocolate, let excess drip off. Dip tip in blue sugar.  Put in fridge to set. 

Took less time to make them than to type this post.



Thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here.
