This weekend, we decided to BBQ and throw a pool party and have some summer fun with Dr Pepper!

For this collab, I was asked by Dr Pepper to share some unique tips to create a few recipes. I picked up a 12 pack of 12 ounce cans of Dr Pepper from my local Walmart. Make sure to look for the new, unique Pick Your Pepper packaging hitting stores 6/15. It’s fun and individualized packaging that was designed by millennials! #PickYourPepper #Walmart

When you buy Dr Pepper from 6/15 through 8/15 this summer, you can upload your receipt at http://bit.ly/2pts8Qo  to get this AWESOME bottle shaped pool float prize featured in this blog post and/or other prizes like:

  • Spend $5, get a unicorn beverage holder inflatable
  • Spend $10, get a Walmart e-Gift Card worth $5
  • Spend $20, get a 6 pack can/bottle holder with ice pack
  • Spend $40, get a Dr Pepper bottle shaped pool float (P.S. it’s AWESOME!!!!)

Dr Pepper is the perfect drink for summertime parties with friends! I LOVE throwing summer parties when it’s warm outside and nothing sounds better than relaxing by the pool, connecting with friends and enjoying a refreshing and delicious beverage!

But did you know Dr Pepper isn’t just a tasty beverage? It can also be used to put a fun spin on some summer party favorites? I decided to get creative and came up with a few recipes featuring Dr Pepper and wanted to share them with you. I hope you enjoy them!

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños

These bite size snacks are so tasty and addicting and finger foods are always a great appetizer when friends are over. So what’s better than bacon wrapped jalapeños? How about jalapeñowrapped in bacon that’s been marinated in Dr Pepper!?

What You Need:

  • Dr Pepper
  • 10-12 strips of bacon
  • 10-12 jalapeños
  • Mozzarella cheese

How To Make:

  1. Marinate strips of bacon using one 12oz can of Dr Pepper. Let sit for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  2. Cut off tops of jalapeños and fill each with mozzarella cheese.
  3. Wrap a strip of bacon around each jalapeño. Hold together with a toothpick.
  4. BBQ together until bacon is desired crispy-ness.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

By the way, bacon marinated in Dr Pepper is SO good that it’s also delicious just on its own!
