Equipment

  • 1 BBQ Skewers package, wooden

Ingredients

  • 2 Dozen Donut Holes
  • 1 package Strawberries
  • 1 16 ounces Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1/2 cup White Chocolate melted
  • Red White, and Blue Sprinkle Mix
  • BLUE GLAZE TO DIP:
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 5 or 6 drops Vanilla Coffee Creamer
  • 3 or 4 drops Blue Food Coloring Gel

Instructions

  • Place the Strawberries in a Colander, and rinse well under cool water. Lay on paper towels to drain.
  • In a medium-size bowl, mix the Powdered Sugar, Coffee Creamer, and Blue Food Coloring Gel, and stir well to mix.  If the Glaze isn't bright blue enough, add a few more drops of the Food Coloring Gel, and stir well to mix.
  • Drop the Donut Holes into the Blue Glaze, and lay on a Parchment Paper lined Cookie Sheet to allow the Glaze to set, or firm.
  • When all the Donut Holes have been dipped, place the Cookie Sheet in the Refrigerator.  If the Donut Holes need to be dipped again to make sure they're bright blue, let them get cold in the refrigerator, and dip them again, then place them back on the parchment paper, and back in the refrigerator.
  • When the Glaze is set on the Donut Holes, open the container of Frosting and place the frosting in a pastry bag with a star tip. Cut the Strawberries in half, length-wise, removing the green stem.
  • When ready to assemble.  Place a Donut Hole on the Skewer first, then pipe the Frosting underneath, Skewer a Strawberry, and repeat until you have three Donut Holes, and Three Strawberries between Frosting on the Skewer - see photo.  Lay the Skewers on a Parchment paper lined Cookie Sheet.
  • Melt the White Chocolate in the microwave, and drizzle with a spoon over the Skewers.
  • Immediately Sprinkle the Red, White, and Blue Sprinkle Mix over the Skewers, allowing it to stick to the melted White Chocolate.
  • Place the Skewers back in the refrigerator until time to serve.  Serve, and Enjoy!
