Four Fun Fourth of July Recipes


With the long weekend nearly upon us, I thought it would be a great time to share some of our favorite Fourth of July recipes. Whether the whole neighborhood is coming over or it's just going to be your immediate family, we have some backyard barbecue ready Fourth of July recipes that are perfect for all your festivities...and they're each and every one is a dessert. What can I say? I have a sweet tooth and holidays are the perfect time to indulge a bit!

I don't know about y'all, but for me, the Fourth of July is all about celebrating our great country while enjoying some laid back quality kinda time with my loved ones. So, you won't find anything overly complicated here...Let's hear it for EASY dishes that will enhance your fun without requiring loads of prep time!

fruit cups

First up we have our Fourth of July party...complete with easy DIYs like Tin Fruit Cups. No matter what holiday we're talking about, you always get extra credit for presentation! These fruit cups look great and are super simple to make!


Sara from Mom Endeavors never steers us wrong with her yummy recipes...and she's particularly good at dressing up sweets! Head over to find out how to make her Patriotic Firecracker Cupcakes. They might take longer than fruit cups, but they're worth a bit of extra effort!

krispie treats

Everyone loves krispie treats right? Keep the kiddos busy at your celebration by letting them decorate their own star shaped krispie treats! The messier they are, the cuter they are...Am I right?! The little ones might just have to fend off hungry adults from eating their masterpieces. Haha!

baked brie

And for a slightly more sophisticated take on dessert...Take Time for Style came up with a Red, White and Blue Baked Brie Dish that is as easy to recreate as it is impressive looking. This isn't your ordinary old pot luck dish!
