July 4th Picnic Snacks

If you can’t have a campfire but you love to eat S’mores, try this Skillet S’mores Dip that makes enough for everyone to eat. You use graham crackers to dip into the baked chocolate and toasted marshmallows for the same great taste as cooking the marshmallows over the fire.


Here is another delicious snack all red, white and blue called Fruit & Flipz.




  1. Wishing you a happy 4th of July weekend. We’re a few days ahead of you with Canada Day on July 1. Your recipes are perfect for the occasion!

    • Thank you Linda, hopefully no rain this year! Our neighbor shoots off a commercial style display every year. We sit on the porch or in the cabana and watch them.

      • I hope you don’t have what we got today Diane – rain all day and about to have storm #3 – your garden would be very happy though! That sounds nice … especially that you don’t even have to leave your house.

      • We really lucked out with the storms but we did get some much needed rain. I hope you didn’t get hit too bad Linda. The garden has really taken off since the rain came. Cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, poblano peppers, jalapeño peppers and more.

      • We got a lot of rain and boy was it humid this morning 93%. The grass is green and lush again and my neighbor’s magnolia tree is about ready to bloom (second time this year). I wish I could have given you some of our rain Diane. Even though it poured for a solid hour, it did not oversoak anything thankfully.

    • I’m with your husband, such a delicious sweet treat! Have a fantastic Canada Day with no fires! Today was the first day we haven’t had smoke from there. It is so sad when I think about the people and animals.

    • You’re very welcome! I make sure we have them once a year on the 4th of July. If we don’t have the grandkids over, I will put one graham cracker on a plate, top with marshmallows and microwave a few seconds until the marshmallow puffs up. I remove the plate and immediately place the chocolate on top of the marshmallow and the other graham cracker. This gives me my yearly fix. Lol
