Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays and always makes me feel like Summer has finally arrived. We had a great 4th spending the day at Crescent Beach in Laguna followed by some great food and fireworks. I also attempted to make a few of the treats in the post below. This was my second attempt at cake pops and might be my last. They turned out OK only after trying three different types of chocolate to coat them with. FYI- The cheaper the better. The one that worked the best was some off-name brand from Target for about $1.50. Here are some pics.
