Our July 4th!

Monday, July 4, 2011 9:25 PM Posted by The Cookie Cutter Diva
We kept it pretty low key this year since the boys were not here and they are the ones that are really into the bigger things and Brooklyn still shows a lot of fears. The festival here is just so big the lines are so long that it's not really worth it for her and we decided to stay out of the heat. Not much fun this year with the burn bans in effect! We wanted to see the fire works but the traffic is just ridiculous to even get to see that!

So we decided to stay home this year and stay in and I printed out Brooklyn a free coloring sheet to decorate and made these as treats!

Mini ice-cream sandwiches
Sprinkles or nonpareils
Colorful cupcake liners

First, skewer mini ice-cream sandwiches on popsicle sticks.

Then, press the exposed filling into a plate of sprinkles or nonpareils.

To keep mess to a minimum, serve the pops in colorful cupcake liners

12 ounces white chocolate chips (we melted marshmallows)
Blue sugar or edible glitter

Melt 12 ounces of white chocolate chips in a microwave according to the package directions (make sure the container and the berries are dry; even a little moisture will alter the texture of the candy).

One at a time, dip strawberries into the chocolate and then into blue sugar or edible glitter.

Set them to harden on waxed paper.

Makes 35 to 45 decorated berries.
