Fun for the Fourth

Here are some fast and fun ideas for celebrating the Fourth of July!
Spangled Sandwich Pops
An ice cream sandwich dipped in sprinkles. Yes, please!
How about this cupcake with a red foil liner and an a tiny American flag?!

Use white chocolate bars and melt them in the microwave.
Dip strawberries carefully in the warm chocolate and then dip them again
into a bowl of blue Pop Rocks! Allow your strawberries
at least 1 hour to set up!
This one is a bit more time intensive, but is cute enough to be worth the effort
Make an easy graham cracker crust and then follow the cheesecake directions
on the side of your Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Use a little red food gel and some

Pick up some blue and white striped straws to add a festive touch!

Here is a great tip if you really want to simplify things! Punch a hole in the side of the plate and tie your napkins and utensils to the side. That way no one forgets anything!

Have a great time with family and friends celebrating the land of the free and the home of the brave! It's a great place to live!
