JULY 4TH TREATS FOR KIDS

Try these fun treats with the kids this Independence Day!

Pretzel Sparklers
long rod pretzels
white chocolate, melted
sprinkles (red, white and blue) or star cake decorations

Melt the white chocolate. Dip the pretzel rod halfway into the melted chocolate then sprinkle the sprinkles over the wet chocolate. Lay on waxed paper or place in a cup to dry.

Skyrocket Ice Pops
12 (8 oz) plastic cups
12 craft sticks (looks like popsicle sticks)

Red Layer:
4 cups cran-raspberry juice
red food coloring

White Layer:
2 cups frozen whipped topping
2 cups vanilla yogurt

Blue Layer:
4 cups grape juice
water
blue food coloring

Mix the grape juice and water until a suitable blue color results. Try adding blue food coloring to achieve the desired shade. Pour into the plastic cups filling them 1/3 full. Place into the freezer until the start to freeze. Once they do, stick a craft stick in the center of each cup.

Freeze until solid. Mix the yogurt and whipped topping together. Place a layer on top of the frozen blue layer, and freeze for one hour. Repeat the process given for the blue layer but do it with the cran-raspberry juice and red food coloring. Add a red layer to each cup and freeze until frozen.

Run the outer side of the cups under cold water to release them.
