Happy 4th of July! Goodies done, Lake here I come!

Well I'm heading up to my parents lake front to enjoy the sun and of course the fireworks!  It's going to be fun this year, the last few years it has been very low key.  This year will be too but we have some great friends coming to hang out too!  I'm so excited to enjoy the day with friends.


I whipped up a few items to share!  First off was some simple jello shots in a star shape, I used the recipe from my post here.




Next was to make firecracker cookies I saw on Pinterest (click on the title for the recipe, sorry it wouldn't let me copy and paste for her site).







And last was some red velvet cake pops.  I made Paula Deens red velvet cake mix from the food network.  I then put the mix in my cake pop pan and bam it was ready to go!  I melted some almond bark dipped the cake pops in and sprinkled with blue sprinkles.  Next time I'll use Wilton Melts they just work better and are smoother finish.

Happy 4th of July everyone hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends and lots of laughter!
