4th of July Recap – Craft & Recipe

I had so much fun making these 3 items to share at our 4th of July celebration.  Red, white & blue everywhere!

4th of July Recipes - Snack platter

I’ll let the pictures tell the story.  Here are the first 2 snacks . . . Firecracker Favors & Patriotic Strawberries.

4th of July firecrackers - supplies
4th of July Crafts - cut

I started with 1 1/2″ strip but changed to 2″.  It looks better.

4th of July Crafts - 3 twizzlers
4th of July Crafts - wrap
4th of July Crafts - display
4th of July Crafts - curling ribbon

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

4th of July Recipes - melt
4th of July Recipes - Strawberries blue sugar

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…

4th of July Recipes - Patriotic Salad

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.

Enjoy!
