Every celebration needs great food, and these Easy 4th of July Strawberry Sticks are festive. Decorated in Red, White and Blue they are perfect for all those picnics and barbecues; or how about while watching fireworks.

Chocolate Strawberry Crisps

This is a simple go to Valentine’s Day treat that is perfect for anyone. Perfect to serve at a party or give as a special treat to that special someone, or even someone not so special. ūüėČ These can be done with any type of chocolate (I like to use Ghiradelli Melting Wafers.) and can then be decorated in any way or not at all. I promise these little crisps are delicious. I am pretty sure that I consumed more than I actually got done to photo.
