Archive for the ‘4th of July s’more Bar’ Category

I can’t believe June has passed and it’s already July, yet here it is!  And I’m busy getting ready for this years 4th of July camping trip!

I just can’t let this month take off without posting a fun little fourth of july themed post!

To start I don’t think I ever shared our yummy little patriotic s’mores bar from last years 4th of July camping trip (I looked back in posts and couldn’t find anything.), so I thought I’d share a few photos of it!

I couldn’t find patriotic themed m&m’s so my three year old is currently sorting through a giant bag of m&m’s so we can make these up this afternoon!

I have licorice and whatever blue and red m&m’s we don’t use we’ll set in cute little dishes also!

My son has been asking for chocolate cake with strawberries so I thought I’d make a version of this and replace the raspberries with strawberries!

Of course there will be fireworks, sparklers, and much, much more patriotic fun!

What do you plan on doing to celebrate this Independence Day?  Whatever it is we hope you have a very…
