Patriotic Treats

With the 4th of July quickly approaching, I have been thinking (and scouring Pinterest) to get ideas for what red, white, and blue treats I should make. Here are my favorite ideas:

Everyone loves Rice Krispies and they are just so easy. Grab a star shapes cookie cutter and you have an adorable, themed dessert.

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries are the perfect patriotic fruits. Just add shortcake, marshmallows, or bananas for a festive red, white, and blue kabob.

Who doesn't love strawberries, chocolate, and sprinkles?

Remember poprocks from your childhood? Add them to iced sugar cookies to create a firework in every bite.

And what is a 4th of July celebration without some refreshing adult beverages?

You have probably already seen this blowing up your Pinterest. I love the starfruit. 

Isn't sangria the perfect summer drink? So refreshing and this one is pretty and festive. 

I think serving these alongside a hotdog bar would make the perfect 4th of July celebration. You can bet I'll be sipping on that Patriotic Punch come next Thursday. 

Have a great day, friends!
