Between all those “oohs” and “ahhs” sometimes we get a little bit hungry. Especially if it’s a bigger show that we’ve camped out a few hours for to ensure prime viewing space. These firework friendly snacks are easy to make, easy to eat, and full of yummy patriotic perfection.
Make these firework friendly snacks
When it comes to holiday treats chocolate is always at the top of the list. Always. Laurie from Two Sister Crafting knew just how to make a crowd pleasing 4th of July treat when she created these Red, White, and Blue Chocolate Cookies. The hardest part? Trying not to miss to the show as your close your eyes in chocolate ecstasy.
There are easy recipes and then there are easy recipes. Megan of CraftCreateCook has defined easy with her 4th of July Pretzel recipe. These adorable flag themed, mess-free treats can be made in just minutes.
As hot as the Fourth typically is – even when the sun goes down – a refreshing snack on hand is always appreciated. This 4th of July Watermelon Appetizer recipe from Cooking With Ruthie is not only a hydrating patriotic option, but it’s so easy to make even the kids can help with the pre-firework prep.
For the non-sweet loving firework spectators, this one is for you. These Parmesan Cheddar Basil Stars from Mom Foodie are cheesy and patriotic perfection all rolled into one. We already can’t wait to munch on them during the display, and good luck trying to snag the post show leftovers from us.
We’ve already established that a good mix is the perfect firework friendly snack. Well, this 4th of Patriotic Muddy Buddy Snack Mix from Marybeth of Baby Savers is one you’ll definitely want to have on hand for the evening (or really anytime). Its red, white and blue sweetness will have you wishing every day was July 4th.
The conclusion that you need these at your 4th of July firework watching party is right in the name. A yummy little haystack-inspired treat packed with equal parts sweet and crunchy make them a must-have at your celebration. So take a few moments (because they really are so easy to make!) and put together a batch of Red,White, and Blue Firework Treats from Cathy of Lemon Tree Dwelling. It’s your patriotic duty.
