Awesomely simple patriotic cupcakes!
My mom asked me to bring some cupcakes for our family 4th cookout, and when I make cupcakes I like to go all out, so I browsed the baking isle and managed to throw this together. Now I'm trying to resist eating them until the BBQ tomorrow :/

    Melt your white chocolate chips. I did mine in a pan on a stove, I recommend adding a little veggie oil to keep it from burning.

    For these, I sliced the strawberries (I like it because the inside of the strawberry looks like an exploding firework), put a little blob of white chocolate on it, and sprinkle some of the colored sugar over it. I also put a couple white chocolate chips around the strawberry slice.
