Get That Boom Boom Pow!

I can't wait to show you the cookie platter I created for the Fourth of July.  I was all like, oh I just love it and it totally looks like a firecracker.  Then my hubby came home and burst my firecracker bubble. I won't even tell you what he thought it was.  Quickly I sent the photo to a few family members, hoping they would reassure me they looked like firecracker cookies.  They got it right.  So on with the post.

Every time I have a reason to celebrate, which is often, it involves crispy cereal treats made with the one and only JET-PUFFED Marshmallows.  And when I'm craving something sweet, this quick and easy JET-PUFFED Marshmallow recipe is the first that comes to mind.

Today is no different.  With a summer filled with sports... all kinds of sports, I am showing you a few ways to celebrate.  So grab your JET-PUFFED Marshmallows and let's get started!

S'mores Marshmallow Sandwich!

Sometimes things can get a little complicated in the kitchen.  Today's post is so simple you can make them with your kids... or let your kids make them... or make them and don't tell anyone you've made them and eat them all yourself.  That could happen when it comes to S'mores.
 
Obviously, S'mores will be on the menu at many Fourth of July celebrations, so I decided to show you how to make S'mores cute without a campfire.

DIY Cookie Cutter and Hot Dog Cookies!

The wait is over!  After posting the Sno Cone cookies (where I made my own cookie cutter), I decided to show you how simple cookie cutters are to make.  I needed something for Memorial Day and along with the S'mores Bars, I decided to make Hot Dog Cookies.  After searching through my arsenal of cutters, no hot dog cutter was to be found.  Hmm, time to make another cutter.
 
Today you're in for a double whammy, not only am I showing you how to make your own cookie cutter, I'm showing you how to decorate your cookies to look just like Hot Dogs!  Perfect to take to your next picnic.

Decorated Take Home Box!

Obviously, I love making sweet things cute, it's my favorite part of preparing for a party.  This party was no exception, in fact I think I had more sweets then any party before.
 
It's been a tradition, because I make so many sweets, I let my guests take a few sweets home to enjoy with their family.  In the past, I've used recycled containers from all the take out (a lot of take out because I'm busy making all the sweets).  This time I decided to decorate little boxes for each guest to fill and take home.

DIY Ribbon Wands!

When thinking of ways to make the birthday girl feel special on her big day, ribbon wands came to mind... like the kind kids play with, only on a smaller scale.  Being there is a kid locked inside of me, it wasn't long before I created enough wands for each guest to wave after a toast of champagne.

Displays & More!

Sometimes a person just can't stop creating, said person being me.  Yes, more sweets were made to fill up the space around the cooktop.  Sometimes enough is not enough.

Mini German Chocolate Cheesecakes!

This one almost got away from me, I had so many desserts I panicked when I thought I had forgotten to photograph the Mini German Chocolate Cheesecakes.  Looks like I didn't need to panic...I got photos and even remembered to serve them.  Have you ever hosted a party and after the guests were gone, you find something you forgot to serve?  Yea, me too.   I guess after all the work and the way they ended up so cute, it would have been reason to panic if they were forgotten.  They are now gone, but not forgotten!

Crazy Crunch Popcorn!

There are more ways to serve popcorn than with butter and salt.  This is one of my favorites and packaging it with a label, takes it to a whole new crunch!

Shabby Chic Dessert Table!

It's time! Time to put it all together and show you the dessert table.  Even though the dessert table was for a birthday, it could easily be used for a bridal shower, baby shower or any other reason to celebrate.  There's always a reason to celebrate, right?
