Firecracker Slush




With summer pretty much here, I've started thinking about the 4th of July. I never really decorate too much, but I always do something food related. Every year I make a Snicker's Cake, and last year I also did one that looked like a flag inside when you cut it. Even though it's not the 4th yet, I decided to give something new a try. Something inspired by the Rainbow Slush.


You need the same ingredients. Frozen ice pops (something with white), dishes to put them in (these are single serving size), a bowl & a fork.


Freeze the pops, then seperate your red, white & blue colors.


I forgot a picture of just the blue, but crush your pop in the bowl and then add the blue to your dishes. Then repeat with white and red. If you pops are soft enough, you may be able to just pour them straight into the dish. But then you also run the chance of the colors blending.




Here is it after the addition of the red. Isn't it cute?


Then if you like, you can add your choice of garnish. Here I used a lollipop stick & a pompom.


Now kick back & enjoy! (I wonder if the adults could add vodka to these? LOL!)


Do you have any projects or recipes planned for the 4th?
