31 Last-Minute Fourth Of July Entertaining Hacks Provided By BuzzFeed

The month of June just flew by and the 4th of July is rapidly approaching. One of the nicest work holidays all year, we get to enjoy the sun and our freedom! During this holiday, patriotism comes to life in just about everything; food, d├ęcor, and clothing. BuzzFeed has thrown together some great ideas if you plan on celebrating this glorious day with the red, white, and blue.

Here are some of my favorites:

1. Decorate a cake with raspberries, blueberries, and white chocolate chips.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pacakge of fresh strawberries
  • 1 bottle of champagne
  • 1 canning jar
  • 1 bag of white melting chocolate
  • Bottle of blue sugar sprinkles

Directions:

  • Fill your canning jar with strawberries and fill with champagne. Allow to set for at least 24 hours. If you are in a pinch for time, you can poke small holes in the strawberries with a tooth pick to allow the champagne to penetrate faster.
  • Pat dry the strawberries
  • Melt your white chocolate in a small pan.
  • Dip your strawberries into the chocolate. Place down and let the chocolate set a bit (30-45 seconds). If you dip it immediately into the sprinkles your chocolate will bunch up.
  • Enjoy! These do not hold very well. About 2-3 days in the fridge tops, so only make as much as you need.
