Fourth of July is this week and if you’re in the United States, you probably have a party or BBQ to attend. Still not sure what you’re going to bring to your potluck? Check out these deliciously patriotic sweets I’ve selected from around the Internet.
These layered stars, made from white chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, and food coloring, give a bright pop to any party table.
If brownies are more your style, try these stacked red velvet brownie stars with cool whip and blue berries.
I love these because they remind me of the jello desserts of the 1960s.
These candy bars are a great surprise for your friends! From the outside they look normal, but one bite reveals the red, white, and blue stripes inside. I always love surprise inside treats.
If you have access to a freezer, these pudding pops are great for a hot summer day.
Made from a combination of yogurt, fruit, and honey, these delicious smoothies are a perfect cool down on 4th of July.
Here’s another version of the surprise inside treat. This cake is baked with several colored layers and combined to form a flag when cut into. Can you imagine what your friends will say when they see the inside?
To the unfamiliar, these look like your everyday sugar cookies with candy sugar and sprinkles on top. What they don’t know is these will pop and crackle in your mouth when you eat them! How you ask? The secret ingredient is Pop Rocks!
To keep with the firecracker theme, here are some cute cupcakes that look like little firecrackers exploding.
If you aren’t planning a red, white, and blue dish for your party but still want it to look festive, decorate it with flag picks! To make your own, download my free American flag pick printable by clicking on the picture below:
