UPDATE: 4th of July Treats & Eats

We had a fabulous 4th of July with plenty of leftovers! I personally love leftovers because they save money and I don't have to take another trip to the store. SCORE! Here are two things I made with my July 4th leftovers.

One of the items on our menu was red velvet marble brownie stars. Read how I made them here.

Pulling out the stars created a lot of brownie scraps so my friend suggested I save them and make cake balls! I rolled the scraps into balls and placed them on a waxed paper covered pan. I then placed the pan in the freezer to cool while I made the icing. I melted white chocolate using the same technique I used to make my white chocolate covered strawberries. I poured the chocolate in a clear bottle and squeezed it on top of the cake then placed them in the fridge to harden.

After making chocolate covered strawberries and watermelon & blueberry salad I had a bit of fruit leftover. I put all the leftover fruit in a blender with a little bit of orange juice and some ice. After a few swirls of my blender I had a delicious smoothie for breakfast. YUM! 

Have you ever been creative with your leftovers??

Keep Pinning,
