While you wait…..make the “fireworks” drip guards

Use colorful cupcake liners ~ flatten and cut in towards center ~ or use construction paper….
1.  Cut 4-inch circles out of construction paper, cut fringed strips towards center circle (center circle approx. the size of a nickel).
2.  Fold the circle in half and cut a small triangle in the center of the circle by snipping two angled cuts.
3.  When you open the circle, you should have a small diamond shape.  Insert the stick so the drawn circle (if you made one) faces down.


Serve!

Pop the frozen treats out of molds, add a festive “fireworks” drip-guard & serve!
