Summer treats with NEW Jif Hazelnut Spreads

6/1/2012

Create a summer haven in your backyard, with the taste of something new! When you entertain outdoors this summer, dazzle you guests with a spruced up backyard, and an exciting new menu! It starts with New Jif Hazlenut Spreads. Serve up super easy (no camp fire required!) Microwave Chocolate Hazelnut S'mores. Hazelnut Ice Cream looks — and tastes — great served up in a cone dipped in chocolate and rolled in chopped hazelnuts or spread between two Chocolate Hazelnut Chip Cookies for an instant ice cream sandwich. These summer desserts are sure to make childhood memories!

Add that same fun flair to your backyard. Think of your patio or backyard as an extension of your home. Establish a play spot for the kids. Create a conversation area with a small table and a couple of chairs. Choose a spot for grilling and eating that's easily accessible from the house.

Decorate each area with a casual and comfortable feel — it's all about relaxation and enjoyment. For a pop of excitement, add one or two brightly colored items such as a pillow, planter or sculpture. Freshen up old patio furniture with a new coat of paint.

Lighting can make an ordinary space feel magical. Hang lanterns from branches, hooks or line them up and down the center of your table. Strings of lights look great wrapped around tree trunks and branches, which will bring a romantic, starry atmosphere to your backyard.
