Happy (almost) Independence Day! Headed to a picnic or barbecue? We’ve got you covered with a roundup of red, white and blue desserts that will surely ignite your get together. Sit back and enjoy the fireworks show with any of these yummy desserts.

We love you, America.


Two Sisters Crafting has updated an old favorite with their Fire Cracker Rice Crispie treats recipe. Fun to make with the kids, too!


No time for anything too involved? I love this idea from Family Fresh Meals. Simply line up fruit and white chocolate pretzels to make a flag dessert (cut up angel food or pound cake would work, too)!


This ice cream cake from Hoosier Homemade looks so decadent and delicious! Ice cream sandwiches are very popular at our house, so I’m pretty sure this cake will be well received. Just eat it quickly if your event is outdoors!


Jo Cooks know how to put a twist on the classic flag cake – make the bottom layer a brownie! It’s eye-catching pizza shape will cause a stir, too. Easy to cut (and eat)!


It doesn’t get more classic than a beautifully displayed blueberry trifle from Natasha’s Kitchen. Layering desserts are super easy to create and this one will make a gorgeous centerpiece for your July 4th table.


Last but not least, fruit sparklers make a refreshing treat for little ones who may have already had enough sugar for the day. We love this recipe from Tastes Better From Scratch!
