Happy Fourth of July!

I am so excited to be back home for the 4th of July! The celebrations, the food, friends & family, fireworks and the flag everywhere, it’s such a huge celebration here, and I haven’t been back home for the 4th since I moved seven years ago to the UK so it’s great to be home for it this year. 

I wanted to join in the festivities with some great, red, white, and blue, rice krispy stars. My momma was making fancy flag cookies so I thought these would compliment her’s perfectly.

  3. Then one miniature marshmallow
  4. Gently add last blueberry
  5. Then the rice krispy star on top

Recipe Notes

Make sure your rice krispy stars are completely cooled or they will just fall off the cake pop stick. You also could use skewers instead of cake pop sticks, they are easier to slide the fruit onto and stick into the stars. Be careful though with children and skewers, they are sharp.


I love the community feel of the fourth of July. Everyone comes together to help support the local town’s parade, there are family activities all day long including face painting, water balloon fights and more. There is food galore all adorned with that vibrant red, white, and blue flag, the one we are so very proud of. There is a huge fireworks display for the entire town to join in and watch together. It used to be one of my favorite times of the year back home and I am so glad I get to share it with my two kids now. Hopefully it won’t be another seven years before we are here again for it.

I will be sharing all our festivities afterwards too, so stay tuned.

Happy 4th of July!
