Simple 4th of July Desserts

Monday, June 10, 2013

The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays.  It's all about, fun, food, and fireworks, so what's not to love!?  Sometimes we go to the beach, other times we go to barbeques, but this year, my friend and I are throwing our own BBQ!  We decided that there were just too many nifty ideas NOT to have a party.

Lately, I have been seeing all kinds of nifty ideas for decorations and such, so I thought I'd share some of them with you.  Today...desserts.  The most important part of any meal :).

Here are ten 4th of July dessert recipes and ideas that look easy enough:

4th of July Ice Cream Sandwiches

Last, but not least...


4th of July Dirt Cup

Ok, so the last one doesn't have a link because my amazing hubby made it a few years back.  And he came up with the idea on his own!  This had to have been the biggest and best dirt cup I have ever seen (or eaten)!  To make it, just fill a pot (washed, of course) with layers of chocolate and vanilla pudding and crushed Oreos, then top with your favorite 4th of July themed decorations!  Oh, and don't forget the gummy worms!  Yum!
