When we plan our Fourth of July menu, I turn to dessert first before figuring out everything else. It’s the star of the show, and the holiday gives me a chance to break out the red, white, and blue combo that doesn’t really make sense for the rest of the year. I’ve seen plenty of patriotic dessert disasters all over Pinterest. Skip the fussy fourth of July desserts in favour of these beautiful, but most importantly, easy-to-pull-off sweet treats.
These red, white, and blue options are packed with flavor and sure to impress and satisfy. Check these patriotic Fourth of July desserts out below:
