Spangled Sandwich Pops
  • Mini ice-cream sandwiches
  • Sprinkles or nonpareils
  • Colorful cupcake liners

  1. First, skewer mini ice-cream sandwiches on popsicle sticks.
  2. Then, press the exposed filling into a plate of sprinkles or nonpareils.
  3. To keep mess to a minimum, serve the pops in colorful cupcake liners

    Revolutionary Berries
  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • Strawberries
  • Blue sugar or edible glitter

  1. Melt 12 ounces of white chocolate chips in a microwave according to the package directions (make sure the container and the berries are dry; even a little moisture will alter the texture of the candy).
  2. One at a time, dip strawberries into the chocolate and then into blue sugar or edible glitter.
  3. Set them to harden on waxed paper.
  4. Makes 35 to 45 decorated berries.

    Red White & Blue Soda

    • Ice cubes
    • Cranberry juice
    • Wild Berry flavor Gatorade Fierce
    • Diet 7-Up


  1. Fill a clear glass with ice cubes. Pour the drink with the most sugar (check the nutrition label) into the glass. For our red, white, and blue recipe, start with the cranberry juice.
  2. Very slowly add a beverage that contains less sugar -- in this case, Wild Berry flavor Gatorade Fierce. Be careful to pour it onto an ice cube -- not directly into the other drink -- to keep them from mixing.
  3. Use the same technique to add a layer of Diet 7-Up.
