Pinterest Inspired 4th of July Treats

Pinterest Inspired 4th of July Treats

I cannot believe that July is just around the corner!  July is a special month for me not only because we celebrate our Independence Day here in America but it also happens to be my birthday month and wedding Anniversary!  So in celebration of the coming month I put together three super easy Pinterest Inspired 4th of July treats!

Cherry Bomb

4th of July Cherry Bombs

Ingredients Needed:

  • Maraschino Cherries
  • White Candy Melts or White Chocolate Morsels
  • Blue Sprinkles or sugars

Directions:
Melt your chocolate according to package directions.  Drain and pat your cherries dry then, dipped in the melted chocolate,  dip/rotate into sprinkles, transfer it to wax paper and that’s it!  Easy right?

Chocolate Covered Oreos

4th of July Oreos

Ingredients:

  • 12 oreos
  • white chocolate melts
  • red chocolate melts
  • blue chocolate melts
  • Oreo candy Mold (available in most crafts stores or online)

DIRECTIONS
Melt your chocolate according to package directions, then pour some of the melted chocolate onto the oreo mold. Next, gently push the oreos in allowing the candy to rise around the oreo. Add some more chocolate anywhere the oreo is exposed. Place them in the refrigerator until firm for about 15 – 20 minutes. Next place some melted chocolate in a sandwich bag and melt according to directions. Snip the top of the sandwich bag and drizzle onto oreos in a zig zag pattern (or you can spoon drizzle the chocolate). Refrigerate to firm the chocolate and that’s it all done!

4th of July CakeRed, White & Blue Cake

Ingredients

  • White Cake Mix (water, vegetable oil and eggs called for in the box )
  • (1) 12oz. can White Frosting
  • Blue Food Coloring
  • Red Food Coloring

Directions

Heat the oven for 350◦F.  Grease a bundt cake pan.  Make your cake according to package directions and divide the mix into three seperate bowls.  Add blue food coloring to one bowl and mixed to the desired color.  Then, add red food coloring to the second bowl and mix to the desired color.

Pour the red cake batter onto your greased pan.  Next, carefully pour the white cake mix over the the red making sure you don’t stir it.  Last pour the remainder of the blue batter onto the pan, again make sure not to stir.

Bake as directed on the box or until your toothpick inserted is clean.  Cool for 5 minutes.

Once your cake is completely cool, equally divide your frosting onto three separate bowls.  Use the food coloring again to make one bowl blue and the other red, leaving one white.  Microwave each bowl for a few seconds (I did 15 seconds) until it’s smooth enough to drizzle.  Then drizzle onto the cake!  That’s it!
