Sun, barbecues, fireworks, pools, family, and friends are just a few reasons why we love the Fourth of July. And, just in case that isn’t enough, we are giving you a few more reasons to celebrate this summer holiday. Whether you are packing a cooler and heading to the beach, taking a road trip, heading to a friend’s pool, or just staying in your own neighborhood, we’ve got you covered with the perfect sweet treat to cool you down.
These Red, White, and Blue Cupcakes from Betty Crocker are the perfect dessert to bring to a party. They are fun, festive, and you can whip them up in just three easy steps. Plus, we all know you can’t go wrong with Betty Crocker.
July is a busy month for all of us, and that is why we love these Swirl Cookies for the 4th of July from The Decorated Cookie . Make the bite-sized cookies ahead of time and freeze them in a Ziploc bag. Then simply thaw, decorate, and enjoy.
Spend the fourth with that special someone and throw a romantic picnic in the park followed by these Easy Berry Cheesecakes from Better Homes and Gardens. Don’t let their elegant appearance fool you. These cupcakes really are just as the title says.
Keep the kids (and husband) occupied in the car by packing a few of these Double Decker Flag Cookies from Munchkin Munchies. These cookies are so tasty they will have the kids and husband forgetting they just sat in hours worth of traffic.
Red, White, and Blueberry Ice Cream Pie with Granola Crust is just what I will be craving on a hot summer day. I’m not sure what I love most. Is it the graham cracker crust, the fruit swirls, or that this delicious dessert is guilt-free and gluten free? You can find the recipe and more beautiful pictures over at Yummy Mummy.
