My Trip ( Easy Patriotic Treats Ideas included)

Hitting the road for a couple of hours, making a splash in the swimming pool after jumping in the jacuzzi, enjoying meals with good friends…

It sounds like an ideal Memorial Day outing!

I had this adventure last Saturday in PA with my fitness Hope Group! When you join a group at HopeNYC, you can except to learn and maybe take some notes depending on the class.

You would never expect to take a roadtrip to Pennsylvania just to see scenic views, visit the outlets, go to the resort with a pool and more! The rain didn’t even scare us! There was a 100% chance of rain in Pennsylvania but we didn’t cancel. It was the most farthest fun day I’ve ever had! When you are part of the Hope family or involved in a Hope group class, you never know what could happen and that’s what I love!

Here are some very simple patriotic treats ideas (Not recipes…don’t want to make you read much much longer! I also didn’t photograph these treats except for two of them! Just thought to share the most last minute and patriotic treats possible to help make your memorial, labor or Independence Day a-little bit more delicious!

Chocolate dipped Oreos!

This is one that I have done before! What you will need is:

  1. White & blue colored melting chocolate.
  2. Cake-pop sticks
  3. Oreos (Costco/Bjs box if you’re serving many)
  4. Patriotic sprinkles ( Try Michael’s or a Bakeshop)
  5. A fridge with space!

Patriotic apples! Dazzle your guests and feed them the healthiest dessert on your menu!

Just buy & roll them in sprinkles!

This aren’t patriotic but many of you will be starting a fire or firing up the oven today! These are photos of some indoor oven s’mores!
