Moist, tender cake and sweet berries are blended into a smooth truffle filling and covered in vanilla-scented white chocolate in this recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Truffles. This is a great way to use up leftover yellow or pound cake, and you can make it even easier by substituting defrosted frozen berries for fresh strawberries.

Fresh strawberries are skewered coated with a shiny, crunchy sugar glaze flavored with balsamic vinegar in this unusual recipe. If you've never tried the combination of strawberries and balsamic vinegar, give it a shot--you might be surprised at how well the acidity and sweetness go together!

White chocolate, blue sprinkles, and red berries combine in this perfectly patriotic summertime treat. These Red, White, and Blue Strawberries are a variation on traditional chocolate-dipped strawberries. They're great for children to help with, and they're fast and easy enough to throw together before a picnic or potluck.

Fresh berries float in a smooth, rich chocolate "boat" in this easy, beautiful candy. This is a fun twist on traditional chocolate-dipped strawberries, and it also works with many other fruits like oranges, kiwi, and mango.

Blueberry preserves and dried strawberries give Double Berry Truffles a vibrant burst of berry flavor, as well as a beautiful red, white, and blue color scheme. I love the taste and texture of freeze-dried strawberries, but if you can’t find them, any dried berry that you like can be substituted.

Fresh strawberries are filled with a creamy peanut butter and chocolate mixture, then dipped in melted chocolate for a unique and elegant candy dessert.

Strawberry Fudge Drops have a lovely strawberry taste, the texture of smooth fudge, and a great crunch from the addition of toasted nuts. Since they get their flavor from strawberry gelatin, their taste is closer to strawberry candy than fresh berries, so if you like strawberry hard candies, this is the fudge for you.

20. Strawberry Jam Fudge

Strawberry Jam Fudge gets its real, fresh berry flavor from strawberry jam, and two layers of chocolate add just the right amount of indulgence. If you have fresh berries, you could always puree them and use that instead of the jam to boost the strawberry flavor.
