6 Recipes for Healthy Fourth of July Treats
You know when you do a search for "easy snacks" and the results include intricate directions and uncommon ingredients? These are not those recipes. You won't need to boil unicorn tears for exactly four minutes and 37.5 seconds to prepare these Independence Day treats; in fact, you may have many of the ingredients already on-hand. My seven- and nine-year-old children helped with many of the dishes, and only one item on this list took more than 15 minutes to make.
Add these cute and easy Fourth of July treats to your celebration, and everyone will think you worked much harder than you did.
