Five Easy 4th Of July Desserts

Hi friends!  Whose getting excited for the holiday weekend?  Personally I'm not a big 4th of July person for the simple fact that the fireworks always scare our dogs :(  They get so stressed out from the noises, and Adam & I always, always stay home with them every year.  So needless to say no big plans over here for us.

Even though it's not my favorite day of the year doesn't mean that I don't like whipping up a patriotic recipe!  Today I thought I'd share 5 easy 4th of July desserts that don't require hours in the kitchen.  Whether you're headed to a bbq with family & friends, or just hanging around the house with your hubby/boyfie, these simple desserts will be sure to impress!

Enjoy!






^^  How easy is this?  Simply assemble any red fruit of your choice with yogurt dipped pretzels, blueberries, and serve on a decorative tray!






^^  Dip pretzel sticks in melted candy melts {found at most grocery stores}, and sprinkle on the red, white & blue!






^^  Use a star cookie cutter for watermelon, and add in red & blue berries for a healthy fruit salad.  Easy peasey!






^^  Fruit & brownie skewers using small brownie chunks, strawberries, blueberries, and marshmallows {could also replace marshmallows with banana slices}.  Quick to assemble and who doesn't love dessert on a stick!?







^^  And duhhhh obviously I had to pimp my own recipe from last year lol!  This summer berry cake is super easy to assemble, and is always a huge hit when you arrange the berries into the American flag!  View my recipe here.





I hope you all have a safe & happy holiday!  And don't forget about pup safety on the 4th.  Here's a link to 9 tips for keeping your dog safe during the festivities. xx

  2. Hello Andy! :) I know what you mean about fireworks, my dog hides when she hears them! Since I'm from Canada, I don't celebrate 4th of July, but I do celebrate the Canadian equivalent, Canada Day, which was actually July 1st. :) These recipes look super fun, and your berry cake is definitely on my list of recipes to try ASAP! Have a lovely 4th of July with your family! :)
