Every year the kids and I make a fun treat for Memorial Day. We’ve made all sorts of fun goodies. I’m all about keeping things simple especially for holidays. Here is a list of fun Patriotic desserts that we have made through the years. I’ve made all of them, but I’ve gotten the recipe from these awesome blogs. Enjoy!
1. Red, White, and Blue Cake by The Snippykit
This year we made the above box recipe cake and added fun red, white, and blue sprinkles to our homemade frosting. We even had the idea of adding sparklers for the candles. Note to self: don’t light the sparklers. It makes the cake taste funny. Other than that, the bottom has of this cake was yummy. lol.
We love popcorn at our house. It is almost an everyday occurrence. Adding M&M’s and sprinkles makes popcorn that much better. Check out Two Sisters Crafting for this easy recipe.
These yummy chocolate dipped pretzels are a perfect snack. These are an easy, go to snack or dessert for kids. No mess and easy to make.
This is another example of a simple treat. I love these wafers. Dipping them in chocolate and sprinkles give it the perfect patriotic look.
5. Red, White and Blue Parfaits by To Simply Inspire
I love these Red White and Blue Parfaits not only because they are so stinking easy and loved by everyone but because they are healthy too. Simply use strawberries, blueberries, fat free plain or vanilla Greek yogurt and granola.
6. Homemade Star Cookies from Ann’s Entitled Life
Grab your favorite sugar cookie recipe, cut out stars, and decorate them red, white, and blue style. If you don’t have one of your own, try this recipe from Ann’s Entitled Life.
7. Fudgey Patriotic Kid-Made Brownies from Mommy’s Bundle
As I said before, I love to get the kids involved in our baking. These are also super easy to make when you’re going for semi-homemade and want to involve the kids. I just use a box brownie and make our own icing, but you could also purchase icing as well.
8. Red, White, and Blue Bark by the Chunky Chef
This may look easy, but this recipe is so simple and easy anyone can make it. All you need is a pan, melting chocolates, and sprinkles or m&m’s to decorate it. This is another fun recipe to do with your kids.
9. Red, White, and Blue Popcicles by What Molly Made
These red, white and blue yogurt popsicles are such a festive and healthy recipe to celebrate 4th of July! With only 3 ingredients, you can make this healthy pops in minutes.
10. Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes by Our Family of Seven
My kids were completely surprised by these ice cream cone cupcakes. It is a fun summer treat with a patriotic style. Very yummy.
11. Patriotic Rice Crispy Treats by Life, Love, and Sugar
Aren’t these so fun! I love the straw handle for the rice crispy treats. If you don’t want to do all out like these ones, adding red, white, and blue sprinkles to your rice crispy treats is a fun way to spruce them up as well.
12. Patriotic Cookie Sliders by Craft River
We love baking cookies, adding ice cream to make ice cream sliders. Our favorite is using snicker doodles or chocolate chip cookies. Adding red, white, and blue is another simple way to make this treat patriotic. If you don’t have a recipe, head over to Craft River to get one OR you can use our chocolate chip cookie recipe to make yours.
I hope this helps you to come up with some great desserts for your next picnic, get together, or dessert night. Enjoy the holiday!!
