We end the Party ... Lemon Fudge, Watermelon Lobsters & a Cool BBQ Invite

We wrap our party with some fun food!  I found a Microwave Lemon Fudge that I have been dying to make and new a BBQ would be perfect.  A watermelon cut into Lobster shapes and of course a FUN invite to pass out to our friends.  And of course the table all done up!


First I made a SUPER easy Microwave Lemon Fudge that I found on Lady Behind the Curtain. OMG is the words ok the initials I kept hearing over and over about this fudge, even the kids loved it.

Ingredients
1-10 ounce bag plus 1 cup of white chocolate chips
1-14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon extract
candies or sprinkles for decorating

Instructions
1. Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with foil (make sure the foil hangs over the edges so serve as
handles).
2. Spray with non stick cooking spray.
3. In a 4-cup microwave measuring cup, mix chocolate chips, milk and butter. Microwave uncovered
on high 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chips are almost melted.
4. Stir in lemon extract.
5. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan.
6. Sprinkle on sprinkles (optional)
7. Place in refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight before cutting.

ALEXIS NOTE: I used a lemon food coloring to give it a little pop of color. 


Then I found a fun idea to cut watermelon shaped as a Lobster on Simply Suzanne's at Home.

Watermelon
Lobster Cookie Cutter
Mini Chocolate Chips (I ran out so I used regular ones)

Slice your watermelon the width of your cookie cutter.  Use the cutter to cut out the lobster shape.  Add 2 mini chips to be the eyes, I only had regular size so it was a little too large for the body.  I bought my cookie cutter off Amazon.


And for a fun FREE End of Year BBQ found on Becoming Martha. These were so freaking cute.  I saved the photo and uploaded into PicMonkey to add some fun wording.  I used a summer time font I had downloaded from a previous project.


Here is our table all done up!


And some fun shots of the party!
