Red, White, and Blue Patriotic Tart
I adore tarts, especially those that use puff pastries! They are so simple to make and you fool the guests into thinking you spent hours and hours making this delicious dessert! It comes together so quickly and tastes incredible! This one is great any time of the year. Don’t let those berries fool you into thinking you only need to bake for patriotic holidays.
Patriotic White Chocolate Blondies
Another recipe that has so much versatility to it! This is great as it’s an unexpected twist on a classic recipe. You are guaranteed that you’ll be the only one bringing this beauty to the gathering. And who doesn’t love the white chocolate chips and that delicious batter!
Keto Low Carb No-Bake Cheesecake
I love an easy, yet delicious recipe for the summer where I don’t even have to turn on the oven! I really like being able to make tasty desserts without heating up the house. You will remain cool before, during and after making this cheesecake! The real challenge will be to see how quickly it is devoured by your friends and family!
Easy 4th of July Ice Cream Cone Cakes
ADORABLE, right? Don’t you want to make these right now and wait for the compliments to just roll in? 🙂 The kiddos will love them and the best part is there is very little cleanup needed afterward! Heck, the kids are even eating the cone! This is just perfect for kids’ parties and school events. They will grab them quickly, they are not too messy, and the other moms will be asking for the recipe!
Stars and Stripes Dipped Pretzels
I can’t get enough dipped pretzels! I love the crispy, salty, chocolate snack! Whoever invented the idea of mixing salty snacks and sweet chocolate should win a prize!! Add to the fact this is just seriously gorgeous. I bet these will be grabbed and eaten right away at your 4th of July BBQ.
Patriotic White Chocolate Popcorn
Here’s another one from Farm Girl Gabs. I love chocolate popcorn! I make a pink version for Valentine’s since we aren’t huge V-Day people. It just makes eating popcorn so much fun! You could portion this in little bags for the guests to take home. YUM!!!
Patriotic White Chocolate Pretzels
I mentioned above that I love chocolate pretzels and I’m sure you do as well! This one is great because she simply drizzles the white chocolate and then adds sprinkles. I really like this idea as you are limiting the chocolate so it isn’t “too sweet” and it is a lot less messy!
This is a great recipe to make with kids. They will have fun sprinkling the decorations on the melted white chocolate.
I bet they’ll eat them as fast as they finish decorating them. What a great way to spend time with the little ones over the 4th of July!
American Flag Cupcakes
Don’t these cupcakes make you feel like you need to break open the sparklers right now and listen to fireworks? They do for me! When I look at them I think picnics, BBQs, friends, lawn chairs and iced tea!
Red, White, and Blue Parfaits
Who says you can’t have a patriotic breakfast? These are a perfect way to start off the 4th of July or Labor Day! Put together parfaits for your family to get everyone in the mood right away! Holidays can be healthy. Here you go!
I bet the kids will have a blast waking up to find the celebration has already started!
American Flag Snack Tray
I always adored the American Flag snack trays out there but I think this one is over the top AWESOME! Check out that blue star container! Just that little bit of creativity took it to a whole new level! Wouldn’t you feel amazing taking this to your friend’s cookout? Check Target, Bed, Bath, and Beyond or Home Goods for one. Walmart might even have one! Hunt this down!!!
Red, White, and Blue Vanilla Cheesecake Mousse
This is an incredibly quick and easy recipe to pull together that for stunning results. The ooey-gooey and creamy mousse center is matched with a yummy nilla wafer crumbly crust! Putting them in the little jars is perfect as your guests can take home the leftovers (although, I highly doubt you will have any!) if they have overeaten on everything else you have provided!
Celebrate the Flag USA Waffles
Let’s everyone start off 4th of July with these waffles! They are the cutest! Yes, look closely, there is actually a waffle under all the yummy toppings! It tricks your eye at first, doesn’t it? These will be a huge hit on your holiday morning!
Rice Krispie Treat Sparklers
I make a lot of patriotic fruit kabobs for 4th of July but haven’t ever used a rice krispie star like this and love it!! Not only cute but it offers a creative sweetness that is needed to add to the kebobs! Grab a star cookie cutter at Walmart or Target. The Dollar Store might even have them. Even if you can’t find one, try adding a square of rice krispie to the end of the kebob.
How to Make Patriotic Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Can I just say “thank you” for these instructions?? How many of us would love to know how to make the “perfect” dipped patriotic strawberries! She shows us how and it is so easy! Plus I love that they are all so darned elegant!
4th of July Brownie Bites
Ok, let’s just stop for a second and dissect this recipe! It’s genius! I love that she took a sweet, simple brownie but changed it up by doing a chocolate dipped cherry with sprinkles laying on a bed of white icing!! I’m not kidding here! This is fabulous! Putting a whole new spin on 4th of July!! I assure you that we haven’t seen much of this on Pinterest!
Red, White, and Blue Patriotic Bark
Chocolate bark is the best! If you have kiddos at home, this is a great one to have them help you make. It comes together so fast and I love that she used different colored chocolate to make her swirls. I had to do a double take since her colors are so vibrant. So festive and fun!
