I am a huge fan of celebrations … and snacks. And the Fourth of July has always screamed Summer-time celebrating to me. You get BBQ’s, desserts, and fireworks to top it all off … what’s not to love? (Other than my poor puppy panicking come every fourth at the sound of the many hours of fireworks, of course.)
As for our own celebrating, my mom always made a great big fuss over July 4th, and as kids, we loved our mid-Summer BBQ’s, hours of swimming in the sunshine, and red, white and blue desserts. So, in honor of such a great Summer holiday, and in the spirit of sweet patriotism, I pulled together a few really awesome desserts you’re going to want to make this long weekend.
