Is there any better way to celebrate the birth of our great nation than with this red, white, and sort-of-blue Popsicle®? Before you answer, I should mention they're actually strawberry and blueberry cheesecake ice pops that are spiked with booze.

Wow! These are incredibly delicious (just be sure to keep them away from the kids). I made these for a birthday bbq last weekend and my guests went absolutely crazy for them. They take a bit of time to prepare and freeze so be sure to give yourself a day or so ahead of time if you are going to make these for a party. Read More
