If you have been around MoscatoMom a while you may remember my Fourth of July Surprise Cupcakes or Simple Patriotic Donut Recipes, but this year I wanted to make something a little… well healthier. We are all working on cutting back on sugar in our diets but still want to enjoy a sweet treat now and then. This year I am going with these Patriotic Firecracker Strawberry Pops which can even be modified to low carb!
There are few things that taste better than chocolate covered strawberries, so making Keto Chocolate Covered Strawberries sounds like absolute perfection. And since strawberries are naturally low in carbs it would be a great treat! I love when a few modifications to a recipe make it keto friendly. Maria Emmerich has a recipe for Keto Almond Bark that would make this treat keto friendly!
I absolutely love patriotic holidays where we get to remember and celebrate and be thankful to live in such an amazing country, but really, I love all things “red, white, and blue” no matter what time of year. My friend Linda featured some All American 4th of July Home Decorating ideas this week that I absolutely loved! Whether you are celebrating for Independence Day or just want a beautiful treat, these Strawberry Firecracker Pops are perfect!
Fun and festive Patriotic Firecracker Strawberry Pops are the perfect summer party treats! Perfect for Fourth of July, Memorial Day, President's Day and more!
- One package of Fresh Strawberries with the ends cut off
- 1 bag of Red Melting Chocolate
- 1 bag of White Melting Chocolate
- Blue Sugar Sprinkles
- Cake Pop Sticks
Place a stick through the end of each strawberry.
Next, melt your red chocolate down. Place in microwave safe dish and microwave in 30-second intervals until melted.
Dip the strawberry into red chocolate all the way down to the stick, to hold it in place.
Next melt your white chocolate down.
After your red chocolate is hardened and set dip strawberry in white chocolate, a little over half way down.
Let white chocolate cool about halfway (make sure it is still somewhat melted) dip end of strawberry in blue sugar.
Let strawberry set.
Serve and enjoy!
