7 Amazing Fourth of July Treats for the Whole Family


7. Patriotic cupcakes

Patriotic cupcakes are perfect for adults and children alike. These cupcakes don’t require silverware and cutting like a cake. In a microwave or a double boiler, melt each color of candy melts and place each in a ziplock bag. On sheets of waxed paper, pipe back and forth in a zigzag pattern to make long sticks of each color candy coating. Allow it to stand until firm (about an hour.) Top your confetti cupcakes with the white frosting. Then, break your colored zigzags and stick them into the frosting of your cupcakes. Don’t forget about sprinkles.
