Patriotic Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Do you love strawberries? Strawberries are one of my son’s favorite fruits to snack on during the summer months. Our summer has been super lax because of Covid-19 keeping us at home.

Normally, we typically spend several hours a week at the swimming pool. But my daughter bought a small swimming pool for her dog and poor Bella wants nothing to do with it. Bella prefers going swimming in the lake. So one afternoon she set up the swimming pool for my son, got water balloons, and squirt guns. They had a blast playing some fun water games and I decided to make them Patriotic chocolate covered strawberries.

I had been planning on making these before the 4th of July but it didn’t happen. Then I remembered that there are several patriotic holidays throughout the year and these Patriotic Chocolate Covered Strawberries would be a hit for Memorial day, 4th of July, and Labor day.

The patriotic chocolate covered strawberries were a huge hit and disappeared very quickly. My son came inside and helped me decorate them too. Chocolate covered strawberries are a rare treat and I was planning on having these made before the 4th of July.
