America....Land That I Love

Hi friends, just "popping" in to wish my fellow Americans a Happy Fourth of July!

Whatever your plans may be, remember our Independence in this Sweet Land of Liberty and the Home of the Brave. Let Freedom Ring!

For our nation's birthday, we're having a little celebration at the office so I whipped up some Sweet and Salty Patriotic Popcorn that I saw on this blog. I used mini non-paraleils, red, white and blue M&M's, pecans, Candiquik candy coating, popcorn, salt and butter. 

I am joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a cute vignette...nonpareils and orange slices were my favorites when I was a kid!
    Have a Happy and safe 4th, Debbie.

  2. What a delightful presentation for your office celebration. I'm sure this won't last long, looks yummy. Have a wonderful 4th of July Deb……...

  3. Yum, Yum - mine turned into a Popcorn Ball!!

  4. What a fun, patriotic treat for the office! Your coworkers must love you, Debbie. Happy 4th to you and Joe!

  5. Deb, I love anything with nonpareils, and the idea of adding them to m and m's and salt is making me drool. Your co-workers must look forward to your treats! Linda

  6. First, I love that cute flag bucket and the nonpareil cookies inside looks good. I bet your coworkers loved them, I would.
    What fun for the grands, wish I was there to make a few party favors such as these.
    Thanks for your sweet visit.
    Enjoy your 4th. of July weekend my friend.
