    Gil and I have started our own 4th of July tradition. While we knew we had great views here, we had no idea what was in store during our first 4th of July. Fireworks are legal (weather permitting) which allowed neighbors to launch their own fireworks along with the city’s own fireworks display. Wherever we looked we could see bright colors shooting into the sky. We grabbed a picnic blanket and our food and a new tradition of watching fireworks from our backyard was born.


    When we celebrate the 4th, we usually have a cookout at the fire pit. This year, we’ll be following up our meal with an awesome ice cream bar. Fitting the patriotic theme, I decided to create a red, white and blue themed ice cream sundae bar using candies from SweetWorks. This will be the perfect treat to help unwind after a day at the lake.

    Celebrate the 4th with SweetWorks Candies

    Patriotic Ice Cream Bar using SweetWorks Candies

    SweetWorks has a variety of chocolates and candies that are perfect for adding some red, white, and blues to your next 4th of July BBQ. For our ice cream bar, we used SweetWorks Sixlets, which are colorfully coated chocolate balls, crunchy candy crumbles, and gumballs.


    The red, white, and blue stars are each flavored (cherry, blueberry, and lemon – I think) and the blue and white candy crumbles are perfect for adding minty crunch to your favorite ice cream. (The crumbles are also perfect for topping hot chocolate, but that’s another season. 😉 )

    Red White and Blue Stars and Candy Crumbles from SweetWorks

    SweetWorks candies aren’t just for topping sundaes and cupcakes. To help decorate for our SweetWorks ice cream topping bar, I used SweetWorks red and blue Sixlets, and a bit of blue painter’s tape, to make a fun DIY, chocolate candy streamer. The individual plastic Sixlets bags made it easy to attach them to the tape. Kids (or adults) can just “grab” a piece of the stream for some chocolate Sixlets.
