Fourth of July Fun

Here are a few things that I did to enjoy this year’s Independence Day…

Sweet Treats:

Firework Marshmallow Pops

I got the idea from http://www.laurenconrad.com/post/sweet-tooth-last-minute-4th-of-july-treats.  I couldn’t find any red, white, and blue only sprinkles, so I used rainbow ones instead to make them “firework” pops.  You can find instructions at the link!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

With the leftover chocolate from the marshmallow pops, I made some refreshing chocolate covered strawberries.  PERFECT use of the leftovers!  They were SO easy to make and turned out to be a great summer treat!

Funfetti Cupcakes

Straight out of the Pillsbury box, these turned out fluffy, festive, and delish!

Cool Photo Ideas:

I found the “firework” setting on my digital camera and had tons of fun making these!  It was a bit tough to juggle the sparkler in one hand and the camera in the other (you can’t have someone else take the photo unless you can write backward!), but it was totally worth it.  You can make pretty much any design, but these are a couple of my favorites…
