Memorial Day Cream Cheese Dipped Strawberries
from kidscooking.about.com

3 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2-4 Tbsp. milk
red, white and blue sprinkles

1. Wash strawberries and dry with a paper towel. Leave stems on.
2. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and sugar together until smooth. Beat in milk, one tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. It should be thin enough to dip, but also thick enough to set on the strawberries.
3. Pour sprinkles into a small bowl.
4. Holding the stem, dip each strawberry into the sweetened cream cheese mixture. Make sure the berries are well-coated with the cream cheese mixture, but leave about 1/4 of the berry tops showing.
5. Gently roll berries in sprinkles to coat on all sides.
5. Place on a serving plate or in a plastic container. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


"A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle."
