Patriotic Candy Covered Strawberries
What you will need:
(1) bag of Wilton’s Vanilla Candy
(1) lb. of fresh strawberries
blue sprinkles of your choice
1. Thoroughly wash your strawberries and melt the vanilla candy as directed on the package. Cover a baking sheet with wax paper.
2. Dry each strawberry and spread vanilla candy around the strawberry with a small spoon or butter spreader.
3. After spreading the candy, quickly (to avoid the candy cooling), dip the tip of the strawberries in a bowl of sprinkles. Carefully lay the strawberries on top of the wax paper baking sheet to set.
4. Place in the fridge to cool.
5. Serve & Enjoy!
Please have a happy & safe Fourth of July!
Ok, so last night I wanted to try something that I havent been successful doing in the past, that something is making candy. 2 years ago I attempted chocolate truffles from scratch and it didn’t go very well. People now refer to that Holiday season as, “The year Jess tried to make truffles”. Lol, ok I get it! However, I came back last night with a vengeance and discovered whats possibly the EASIEST AND MOST COST EFFICIENT way to make candy EVER.
Note: These candies make the perfect inexpensive home-made gifts and party favors.
Vanilla Flavored Candy:
What You’ll Need (all purchased @Joannes Fabric, but depending where you purchase your supplies, prices may vary):
(1) Candy mold of your choice ($1.99)
(1) Bag of Wilton’s Candy Melts (Any Color & Flavors are fine) ($2.99)
Optional: (1) Bag of Wilton Disposable Candy Decorating Bag ($4.99), Foil Candy Wrappers ($1.50)
Prep Time: 2 MINS
Active Time: 5 MINS
Step 2: Place bowl in the microwave (or container) for on 50% power or the defrost setting for 1 minute. *Note: not all the pieces will be fully melted and that’s okay.
Step 3: Stir and place back into the microwave for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Once the candy is fully melted, stir well and pour into candy mold (please excuse the water droplets in the picture, i had just washed these, i highly recommend you fully dry the mold before use to avoid air pockets).
Step 5: Tap molds to let out all the air pockets, then place in the refrigerator until the molds look frosty or the candies are firm.
Step 6: Enjoy!

Target was genius when they put together this collaboration of shops that are unique, inspiring, and affordable. The Shops at Target gives you the best of what Connecticut, Miami, Aspen, San Fransisco, & Boston, has to offer, right in your hometown.
On May 6th, Target introduced “The Shops”, a new design program that offers limited edition collections from 5 stores Target “stumbled upon and couldn’t help but fall in love with”.
Polka Dog Bakery (Boston), The Candy Bar (San Fransisco), The Webster (Miami), Privet House (Connecticut), and The Cos Bar (Aspen), have all been chosen to join The Shop’s.
Target has always believed in offering great design with affordable pricing, so I was very excited to hear about this program!
Check out the video below to learn more about the awesomeness that is Target’s “The Shops“.
So, what do think? Will you will be heading to your nearest Target store for any of these collections in the future? If you’ve already stopped into Target for one of these collections, what did you think? All comments welcome!
