I had so much fun making these 3 items to share at our 4th of July celebration. Red, white & blue everywhere!
I’ll let the pictures tell the story. Here are the first 2 snacks . . . Firecracker Favors & Patriotic Strawberries.
I started with 1 1/2″ strip but changed to 2″. It looks better.
I thought my firecrackers needed a little more depth or pizazz so I tied red curling ribbon around the top ones.
These were a huge hit with my 7 year old niece. We finally had to tell her she had to wait to eat any more.
Next up, Red, White & Blue Strawberries
Melt white chocolate (or 3 squares candy bark). I used a mug so I could dip the strawberry all the way to the leaves. If you use a shallow dish, you’ll have to roll the strawberry in the melted candy.Dip tip of strawberry in blue sugar. I found it was better to roll the tip around the blue sugar. If I plunged the strawberry into blue sugar, it would move the white chocolate up too much.
Makes a lovely platter to share…
Finally, we enjoyed this delicious patriotic salad.
When everyone got home from the Round Top Parade (longest, continuous running parade in Texas), we needed a snack to tie us over til lunch. What better than fruit & cheese.
Cut the watermelon & cheese into cubes. Although I had seen this salad with feta, I used cheeses my family would enjoy. The top row was monterrey jack and the bottom row is swiss cheese.
Find a square bowl for the blueberries. I couldn’t find one, so I bought a set of 5 colored square bowls for $5 at HEB.
