Red, White and Blue Treats for 4th of July

Red, White and Blue Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

It never hurts to have a few ideas at the back of your head when you start planning a 4th of July menu, or just in case you need a dish to bring to the barbecue of friends or family. The easiest thing you can do is make up a big bowl of fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries and bring it out along with some whipped cream or ice cream for a red, white and blue dessert. Here are a few more suggestions that are just as festive and don’t take too long to throw together, either.

Of course, just about any pie or cookie recipe is sure to be a hit, so keep in mind where your dessert is going to be served before you decide what to make. Going to a picnic? Opt for the cupcakes, which travel easily. Entertaining at home? Either the pie or the tart would be a good option, kept in the fridge until ready to serve. Barbecuing? Skip the baked goods in favor of campfire s’mores. And if you’re going to be somewhere with microwave access, definitely do the white chocolate dipped strawberries at the party – they’re cute when you bring them out, but they’re a dessert that people love to play with!
