Last Minute 4th of July Treat: Easy Red, White and Blue Marshmallow Pops

Marshmallows are perfect for any occasion. It's a well known fact (trust). So when the fabulously creative Meaghan from The Decorated Cookie sent me this patriot red, white and blue Marshmallow recipe for Bird's Party Magazine, I knew she was onto a winner!

They look awesome, don't they?! Plus, are super quick and easy to make, and you could even set up a Marshmallow Bar at your 4th of July Party with all the ingredients, and get guests having fun making their own pops -  A sweet treat that doubles as party activity too?! Score!! ;)

Easy Brigadeiro Chocolate Fudge Spoons Recipe

These easy treats are perfect on any dessert table, but they also make fun party favors too! 

The idea comes from Brazil, and the popular chocolate fudge called Brigadeiro. Traditionally, Brigadeiro are rolled little balls of chocolate fudge (much like a chocolate truffle), but using spoons in this way, not only makes it even cuter to serve, but also super easy and quick to make too. 

They are the perfect little sweet treat to have while watching the world cup matches too, and the kids will love helping to decorate the spoons with sprinkles!

PRESS: Access Hollywood with Amy Atlas!!

Hi guys hope you had a fabulous 4th!! :) 

I took the day off yesterday afternoon but now back to work full throttle, and just wanted to stop by and share a really cool video with you! Ok, so I am trying to sound nonchalant, but the truth is, I jumped (up and down) with joy when Amy Atlas asked me to use some of my 4th of July Party Printables for a segment she was doing on Acess Hollywood last Friday!! 

Just being asked by Amy and have her style my printable is dreamy enough for me, but to have them shown on a really cool TV segment on NBC is just the sweetest cherry on top of huge cupcake!! ;) 

The segment looked really fun, and you can spot my printable snack boxes on the table in front of Amy's Sweet Designs book!! LOVE the way she used them, and hope it will be a first of many! hehe

More photos and details on Amy's dessert table can be found here.

HUGE thanks to Amy, Lisa and their team for making the printables look so great!
