Chocolate dipped 4th of July

Thursday, July 5, 2018
Having the 4th fall in the middle of the week was such a downer b/c all I could think about was not staying out too late because I still had to wake up the next morning to go to work. Midweek holidays are a wrap. Moving forward - either take off the beginning or the end of the week (preferably the end, right?) Either way, with the late sunsets of summer, I know fireworks are a late affair and took that off the table this year.  We'll catch the macy's version thank you very much (though it is pretty odd to hear them going off right outside and still not see them because of skyscrapers blocking the view) All in all, our holiday was a perfect combo of craft and chillaxin:
 We started out the morning taking a crafting class at Michaels.  It was some hanging star mobile made out of pipe cleaners and beads. It was a little suspect because the instructor and I had to basically trace and cut the first part of the project but stringing beads piqued their interest thankfully so we left the girls to their own devices for the second half of the hour.

 Knowing we were tasked with bringing dessert to a friends BBQ/pool party, I hit up trusty ole' Pinterest for some ideas and came across this red white and blue sprinkled popcorn that was such a cinch to make (and not ridiculously sugary) that this will have to be a potluck staple.

 All you need is white popcorn (preferably mild flavored/air popped), white chocolate drizzled across the popcorn, and then topped with colored sprinkles. set in the fridge for 5 minutes and wala! a tasty treat.

 with all that extra white chocolate dip we made chocolate dipped pretzels—also using the remaining sprinkles.

 It was so delicious we ended up making our own batch and eating it en route to the party.
 speaking of en route...
 we hopped on the NY Ferry for a quick 5 minute ride across the river.

 Pool, popsicles, prosecco (for the mommies) grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, slime-making, and a dance party?? Yep they got their holiday ON alright... Good times had by all.
