These 4th of July desserts are so fun! Red White and Blue Desserts Ideas that are perfect for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day, these patriotic desserts will be sure to please a crowd!
I love to make special desserts for every holiday, and I totally kill it with a good 4th of July dessert. Remember the red white and blue chocolate covered strawberries? They really make quite an impression at a cookout for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July.
Sometimes I even use the dessert as a party centerpiece! These patriotic desserts are going to inspire you to whip up something special, but you might have a hard time choosing which one to make.
My favorite part? Most of them are super easy and many are no-bake, too! You will have lots to pick from and you will definitely be the hostess with the mostess at your next holiday party (or the best guest when you fix one of these for a pot luck or barbeque). Get ready for some fun, yummy and very patriotic sweets!
Let’s see those red white and blue dessert ideas!
Red, White and Blue Cookies
My family loves cookies. They love them in any shape, flavor and for every single occasion. I find them really easy to bring to a party. The kids are always running around and they may not have time in their busy celebration schedule to sit down to enjoy a dessert, but they have no problem grabbing a cookie on their way to the next adventure.
You can bake these well ahead of time and even freeze them if you need to. This would be a great idea to make a double batch for Memorial Day and freeze one for July 4th. Score! Cookies are also a great option when you don’t have access to a refrigerator.
