I have some recipes to share today. We have so many summer birthdays around here and this time around, I wanted to try something new.
These were taken at my son's family birthday party.
First up is this punch. It was so good! All you do is add equal amounts of Hawaiian Punch (Fruit Juicy Red flavor) and Ginger Ale. (You could substitute Sprite for Ginger Ale if you want.) Then add scoops of vanilla ice cream on top. That's it!
The vanilla ice cream melts into the juice mixture and it's so refreshing...
Next up is cotton candy popcorn...
Pop about 1/2 cup kernels in an air popper. Next up, melt 12 ounces white chocolate chips in microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring in between. Let the white chocolate cool for just a bit, then add about a handful of pink cotton candy. (The cotton candy will melt into the white chocolate.) Then add the popcorn to the chocolate mixture and stir until coated. I then spread it out on waxed paper and added pink sprinkles to the top. I covered it with more waxed paper overnight, then filled these cups with it for our guests.
I had already given out a few cups of popcorn before I remembered to take these pics. Everyone liked it and I'm sure I'll make it again. And of course you can use any color/flavor cotton candy and sprinkles, I just used what I had.
I planned on just doing cake and ice cream, but added the popcorn and a small sausage and cheese tray at the last minute. And no one complained. ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
