Delicious!! - and beautiful
I made this recipe Saturday morning for a ladies group in the afternoon. It took more time than I thought but it was well worth it. I used strawberries and large blueberries. I dipped each blueberry alone, then put them in stacks of three to set. They were more popular than the strawberries.
This is a great, easy recipe! It's delicious & looks so beautiful for a party!
AN EXCELLENT WAY TO IMPRESS AND SHOW OFF, WITHOUT SLAVING AWAWY IN THE KITCHEN.
what a treat
I use dried fruit and it's great. We give it as gifts with our holiday cookies.
since frozen strawberries are available throughout the year dipped fruit is a treat anyday! dipped fruit can be enjoyed anytime during the day! a sweet splurge!
