Today is officially the first day of summer … yippee!!!
I have said before and I’m sure that I’ll say it again … where does the time go? There are not enough hours in the day. My To Do list is way too long … everyday stuff, crafty things that I want to do, gardening that needs to be done, not to mention blogging and how far I’m behind visiting other blogs … always playing catch-up!
Are you hosting a 4th of July party or attending one? Either way, these sweet and easy party favors are sure to be appreciated …
These mini versions of my Licorice Flag happened by accident … a good kind of accident. I like Red Vines, but my favorite is the Jumbo Red Twists version … that is what I bought first. I wanted to use the Jumbos for the flag, but when I laid out 13 Jumbo licorice I discovered the proportions were wrong :( I
ran drove back to the store and bought the thinner size Red Vines. I made the flag … looked at the Jumbos … thought about eating them, OK I would share … came up with this idea and saved myself a belly ache
This is what you will need to make 5 to 6 mini flag favors …
- 8 ounces of Vanilla CandiQuik (or white candy coating) *
- 3 ounces of blue candy coating *
- white non-pareils (or any white sprinkles)
- 8 ounce package of Red Vines Jumbo Red Twists (or any red licorice)
* You will have leftover candy coating, but need the larger amount for easy dipping.
For step by step directions refer to the Licorice Flag.
I confess, today I say yippee for summer … when it’s over 100° … I’ll be wishing for fall to arrive!
