For our gathering, I decided to keep it easy with a festive fresh blueberry and raspberry cheesecake bars based on a recipe from food network by Tyler Florence.
For festive Made in square pans and cut into bar size pieces, I doubled the recipe and have 36 bars. I smeared one with the oven mitt, so we sampled last night – festive and delicious with a nice lemon note.
On to Dark Chocolate Pretzel sparklers – from Martha Stewart. Easy peasy! Did not chop the chocolate chips and it melted just fine. Next time I would plan earlier so that I could source more of the round sprinkles as the sugars sprinkles tended to melt and not as festive impact – I’m sure no one but me will mind!
Back out to the garden to gather flowers for my traditional Red, White & Blue Arrangement:
Now off to visit friends at their lake house for sharing food and fireworks!
Enjoy – living the EntwinedLife
