Do you have big plans for the 4th of July this year?

Are you a family that has a certain set of traditions that you do every year to celebrate the 4th?

When I was growing up we always went to my Mom’s small hometown that had a “big” celebration and we hit up the parade and the fireworks. It was the highlight and we did it year and year again. When I was little and my grandparents were still alive we would all meet up there then head the parade and then end up back at the grandparents house. I remember when my little brother HATED the sirens and refused to go to parade and my great aunt got stuck staying with him! Ahhh the memories.

  MY OTHER RECIPES


As I got older the parade and fireworks stayed the same but after the parade a bunch of my friends would meet up and tube down the river in front of my parents house. That also makes me smile when I look back on those memories!

Now I’m getting older and my traditions are changing again. We have a cabin and make a point of usually coming up here for the weekend, but this year we will be staying home and celebrating in our old “traditional” way by going to the parade that I grew up going too! I hope that I’m creating those fond memories for Miss K like I have growing up.

This year we will also be celebrating  a relatives wedding and a little get away for the family! I hear the pool is pretty kid friendly at the hotel and I’m hoping Miss K overcomes her fear of the water. Maybe her crazy cousins will get her in there!Patriotic Puff Corn ~ Light, Salty Puff Corn Drizzled in Sweet Vanilla Candy Coating! Melt in Your Mouth Deliciousness!

 No matter if you do the traditional 4th of July activities or do something totally your own this recipe is a must make for whatever you are doing! Puff Corn is covered in sweet Candiquik and colored in your favorite patriotic colors. As far as I’m concerned any celebration needs a snack and this will impress everyone!

*Warning* The food coloring may color your tongue and lips, but it entertains kids… or it entertained my child!

This is the food coloring I used – Make sure you get oil based!

    This is such a fun popcorn!

  • Sarah @ Miss Candiquik


    Love this idea – salty/sweet is always a favorite combo of mine. I hope you have a good 4th of July! My younger brother was always scared of water, too – but eventually got over his fear so I’m sure Miss K will as well!

      Glad there is still hope Sarah! Hope you have a fab holiday weekend!
