4th of July - Leaded Licorice

I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July!  I woke my girls up at 5:30 in the morning to go watch the hot air balloon festival.  We drove out to the site only to learn that it was too windy.  Feeling guilty, I took them out to breakfast.  First, we drove to Ihop.  It would have been an hour wait.  Instead we went to McDonald's.

They were not disappointed.

In fact, I think they liked it better than they would have liked sitting around at a table in Ihop.

The playground was the best part.

That night we went to the annual BBQ at my parents' house.  I wanted to bring something easy to grab and eat while watching fireworks.

I scanned my 4th of July Pinterest board.  There were lots of good ideas, but the chocolate dipped strawberries were my inspiration.  I simply dipped licorice in white chocolate and sprinkled them with blue sprinkles.

It was easy as that.  My dad passed around a large tub of regular licorice to everyone.  Then, he passed around my chocolate dipped licorice calling it "leaded licorice."  The name gave me a kick, so that's what I decided to call it.  Thanks dad!

This would be a great movie night treat.  For movie-themed activities you can do with your family check out my website: Fun-Filled Flicks!
