Ingredients

  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1.5-2 cups vodka
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil {optional}
  • 2 TBSP blue sprinkles

Instructions

  • Wash the strawberries really well. Trim the tops if desired. Put in a glass or plastic container and cover with vodka.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 24 hours {the longer the better}.
  • Make sure to turn the strawberries about halfway through "marinating" time.
  • When ready to coat the strawberries, line a strainer with paper towels and sit above a bowl or container. Drain strawberries and strain vodka. Reserve vodka for another use {keep covered in refrigerator}.
  • Make sure strawberries are completely dry, so blot with extra paper towels if necessary {the white chocolate won't stick to a wet strawberry}.
  • Put the white chocolate chips and oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds on 50% power. Stir until smooth. If needed, microwave in 15 second increments on 50% power until melted.
  • Dip strawberries in melted white chocolate. Sprinkle blue sprinkles on the bottoms of the white chocolate to make the red, white, and blue layers on the strawberries. Sit on a wax paper lined plate to set.
  • Repeat with remaining strawberries. Refrigerate until hardened {about 10 minutes}. Best served soon after taking them out of the refrigerator. Enjoy {in moderation, of course}!
  • Keep covered in the refrigerator.

Notes

*Use dairy free white chocolate chips if needed
