Star Spangle Fun!


Photobucket

Lets get crackin'!
Part one...Dessert






Insert a Pirouline (wafer cookie) into the center of a (mini) cake donette.




Melt Nestle white chocolate chips.

Immerse the donette into the white chocolate.
Sprinkle with (red, white, or blue) sanding sugar.
Set aside until the white chocolate becomes firm.



I purchased (mini) star shaped cookies, but homemade shortbread stars would work just as well. Dip toothpick into melted chocolate, adhere to the (back side) of the cookie.




Brush white chocolate (in sections) over
Pirouline (wafer cookie) , sprinkle (liberally) with red, white, and blue sprinkles.




Step five
Wilton party picks can be used alone to form the shooting sparks,
or can be combined with the following...
Cut a (single) Twizzler or red licorice in half.
Cut each half three quarters of the length, leaving the end uncut Taper the bottom corners.




Insert the pick through the fringed Twizzler or licorice




Cookie pick gets placed in front and sparks pick sets behind .


Fruit leather or any flat strips of gummy candy can used in this step too.
If you can't find the Wilton party picks. The star cookie with toothpick can be substituted in this step.



Carefully insert picks through the top of your firecracker.
Place on a star (or round) sugar cookie.




voila

Stay tuned Part Two...
