Turn Cherries Into a Quick & Healthy Patriotic Treat for July 4th!

Looking for a quick snack to whip up for your Memorial Day or July 4th gathering? Make festive patriotic cherries! 

You'll need:

  • fresh cherries
  • white chocolate or white candy coating
  • blue sprinkles

Here's how to make them:

  1. Melt the white chocolate according to package directions. 
  2. Take washed and dried cherries and dip them about 3/4 of the way to the stem in melted white chocolate. 
  3. Then dip the bottom third into blue sprinkles. 
  4. Lay them on waxed paper to dry. 

What could be more simple? They’re not only a refreshing treat but also help dress up your holiday table! Not a fan of cherries? Substitute strawberries!

They are so cute, @elisa. Last year I used strawberries. This year it's back to cherries.
