Howdy!!  It is a new week time for a new fabulous 4th of July recipe for ya!

This week I have a simple recipe, so simple anyone can make it and the kids can help!

4th Of July Bark!!

Super easy and the kids will love adding their favorite red, white and blue toppings.

This would be adorable packaged up in cellophane (I love that word, I don’t know why) bag and add some red white and blue ribbon, maybe a little flag for good measure and you got a perfect snack to hand out for everyone to munch on while gazing at fireworks.

You just gather up your favorite red, white and blue candy and sprinkles.  I grabbed M&Ms and sprinkles but feel free to get crazy with it, toss on some of those patriotic candy corn, or red, white and blue gummies, let the kids go wild!

I started with a base of white chocolate and dolloped on red and blue chocolate.

Bark and sprinkles

Swirled it all around into a mesmerizing marbled pattern.


Then topped away with M&Ms and sprinkles.

Sprinkled and Swirled

Let it cool.  Broke it into pieces and voila, easiest tastiest and prettiest treat.
