The Partiologist: Firecracker Sweets!

Firecracker Sweets!

I know, it's not even June and I'm sharing a Fourth of July treat, I hope you don't mind. When my kids were growing up, fireworks were legal to use at home and we always had a big firework display in our driveway.  When we moved to Colorado, thank heavens I found out they were NOT legal or I could be typing this blog while wearing an orange jumpsuit.
 
These firecrackers, however, are legal.  And easy, so it makes them legally easy.
Licorice Firecrackers!

I've been seeing these twisted red, white and blue licorice everywhere and so I finally caved and bought them.  I figured if I didn't think of anything to do with them, I could always eat them, right?  Well, never fear, The Partiologist is here!
After opening the bag, pull out one twist and cut it in half.  Pull apart the licorice ropes about an inch from the top.  Dip the bottom half in melted red, white and blue candy melts, that's it.  I told you it was legally easy!  Now for something even easier, take a look at these. Firecracker Sixlets~
If you want a lot of BANG for your buck, these are the firecrackers for you. 
Start with red, white and blue sixlets, clear tubes and cupcake toppers.
I layered four red sixlets, then four white sixlets, followed by four blue sixlets.  Repeat until you reach the top of the tube.  Poke a tiny hole in the lid of the tube and place on the top.  Insert the firework cupcake topper and you're done.
 
Hope you'll be having a BLAST gearing up for the Fourth. I'll be back with more...
 
Red, White and NEW!

  2. Nope it's not too early:) We spent many 4th of July evenings watching fireworks from our backyard. Our neighbors all lit them off, many around here still do even though they are illegal in our area.
