Easy Fourth of July Recipes and Ideas-incase you didn’t see this last year- here it is again just in time for the 4th!

Fourth Of July Easy and Super Cute Recipe Ideas:

  • Some of these should be pretty self-explanatory (like the American Flag tooth pick) for the ones that are not see below for recipes and ideas:Fruit Kabob:
    • Strawberry, Blueberry, Banana or Marshmallow or Pound Cake or Cream Cheese for the “white”.
    • Place on a kabob stick

Patriotic Strawberries:

  • Strawberries (dipped in the below)
  • The “White” area can be White Chocolate melted (dip strawberry in it), or White Frosting
  • The “Blue” area is Blue sprinkles

Fourth of July Drinks:

  • Red Wine Sangria can look patriotic with the below fruit:
  • Red Rum Punch can also be made patriotic with the below fruits:
  • Blueberries
  • pineapple, use a cookie cutter to cut star shapes
  • Watermellon, a cookie cutter to cut star shapes
  • Strawberries or Raspberries

Blue Pop Rock Rimmed Glasses (or Blue Sugar if you can find it. Party City or Michael’s are good places to look)

Fruit Plate: (you can probably figure this one out from the picture but just incase)

  • Blueberries
  • Watermelon cut into star shapes with a cookie cutter
  • You can also add other red fruits to the mix (Raspberry or Strawberry)

Flag Cake: (I make this every year) again I think you can figure it out by the photo but just incase.

  • This can be put on top of any cake (home-made or store-bought as long as the icing is white)
  • Blueberries for the “BLUE” area
  • Strawberries (or Raspberries) for the “Red” area

M&M Cupcakes: if these are in too much sun or heat the color of the M&Ms might bleed so better to keep inside until dessert time:

  • You can make the cupcakes or buy them
  • White Icing
  • Red and Blue M&Ms
  • If you want to add “White” into your design…(white M&Ms if you can find them or Mini Marshmallows)

Cake Pops: This is the Easiest way to make a Cake Pop

  • Buy Popems or Munchkins (Popems are less $)
  • Ice them with White Icing
  • Dip them in Red, White and Blue sprinkles (you can also buy the Red, White and Blue sprinkles pre mixed for multi colored cake pops)

Enjoy & Happy Fourth of July!
