Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Holiday

This sweet treat for the Fourth of July holiday is festive and very easy to make! It is also cool and refreshing, not to mention it is relatively healthy. Find out how to make a festive treat that celebrates our Independence Day!

What You Will Need:

Martini glasses (or you can use clear plastic cups for kiddos)

Cherry flavored Jell-O

Cool Whip (or your favorite whipped cream)

Fresh Blueberries

Directions:

Follow the instructions on the box to make the Jell-O. Place glasses on a pan. Fill the glasses 1/3 of the way full. Place in the refrigerator for designated time required for Jell-O to set.

Once the Jell-O has set, add the Cool Whip to the top of the Jell-O. Make sure to leave enough space for blueberries. Essentially each three layers should take up 1/3 of the glass.

After the Cool Whip has been added, next gently place blueberries on top. Place tray of glasses back in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

When serving add a spoon and a festive American flag!

St. Patrick’s Day White Chocolate Bark

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Holiday

Chocolate bark is not just for Christmas. It can be prepared for almost any holiday; you just have to be creative with what themed treats you use. This recipe was created by trying to figure out what themed treats could be added to a bark in order to create a tasty St. Patrick’s Day treat!

 

What You Will Need:

Box of Lucky Charms Cereal

12 oz. White chocolate chips

3 cups of mini marshmallows

1 tbsp. butter

1 cup of rainbow colored sprinkles

Directions:

First empty the contents of the cereal into a large bowl. This is the most time consuming part. By hand pick out the colorful marshmallows and place into a separate bowl. Discard the cereal once all of the marshmallows have been picked out.

Melt the chocolate chips in a pot on the stove. Turn on low heat and add the butter. Stir the mixture constantly, mixing the butter completely. Keep stirring to prevent it from burning and keep chocolate in liquid form.

Next add the mini marshmallows and mix well with chocolate. Once the mini marshmallows are coated with the chocolate, remove from heat. While the mixture is still malleable and not too hot, add in the lucky charm marshmallows. If the mixture is too hot the lucky charms will melt. Next spoon all contents into a square or rectangular baking pan. I use my 9×13 inch pan.

Lastly, dust the bark with rainbow sprinkles and let cool. Once the bark is cool cut bark into rectangular pieces and serve!
