It is hard to believe that the kids have been out of school for over a month already! That means that it’s almost the 4th of July! It is the perfect excuse to gather in someone’s backyard to celebrate with a cookout, which means you are probably trying to decide what food you should make. If you are like me and have a major sweet tooth, there is no question about it that you are going to make a dessert!
I mean, let’s be honest, I am there for the desserts! If I could pile my plate(s) high with every single dessert, I would be one happy girl! You know that scene in Charlotte’s Web where Templeton is having a smorgasbord at the fair? That is similar to the scene that plays in my head as I make my way over to check out the desserts. I have not met a dessert that I do not like!
Because of my love for desserts — which, I think is a family trait that I inherited! My grandma always had a different baked good waiting for us to give her our approval, and my mom was always sneaking an extra piece of pie or cookie — I always bake up something sweet for get-togethers! I have rounded up 25 of my favorite festive desserts that will help bring a bang to your celebration.
Red, white and blue! Stars and Stripes! The dessert possibilities are endless! Let’s check them out!
I hope you can pick just one of these 25 fun and festive desserts to make! They all looks so yummy and are sure to bring an extra spark to the day!
