Sometimes it’s the little things that make me smile. I love when something so effortless & yet fun brings a little light into my day. This is especially true with desserts. I love things I don’t have to slave in the kitchen for hours on & yet end up being huge hits at a gathering. I am not the fist person to think of this idea- in fact I’m know of at least a few other of my favorite bloggers that have done this for various different holidays in various different ways. But for me- I’m all about these little 4th of July nonpareils. I love them in all color combos but I think the red, white & blue make me the happiest. Which means that I had to use them for this little 4th of July dessert.
As you can see- it’s as simple as inserting a Popsicle stick (I used tongue depressors because they are easier to hold) into a semi-soft ice cream sandwich. Then I just sprinkled on the nonpareils & pressed them in a bit. Had to work fast because they were melting quickly. I stuck them back in the freezer to harden again. So easy & yet guests at your party will love the festive touch.
