Desserts for the fourth of July party

Hello Friends!

It has been a busy season for us and the celebration season continues.

Did the weekend seem to go by too fast? I have to say that ours did. We enjoyed celebrating a friend’s birthday and hanging out with family and friends this weekend. The weather was a little gray, but we managed to make the best of it. With the 4th of July coming in just a few weeks, today I am sharing some festive and fun Fourth of July dessert ideas. 

We usually go to a barbecue with friends on the fourth and in looking for some terrific dessert ideas, I have compiled this list of desserts for a Fourth of July party. The great thing about these desserts is that they really are pretty simple to make. With a little food coloring, you can elevate a simple recipe to a fun Patriotic dessert.
