It’s summertime here in the States and that means it’s time for all things beach, grilling, bbq, and 4th of July parties! And don’t forget the amazing desserts that usually accompany a party! I’ve put together a list of 20 great 4th of July desserts from other bloggers for new ideas.
Some of these are made with the 4th of July in mind, others are just patriotic desserts. Meaning, these could be used for other holidays such as Memorial Day.
Add a bit of red, white, and blue flair to your dessert table this summer with any one of these!
In the blogging world, we often support each other. While I love providing you with delicious recipes here, there are other wonderful recipe bloggers out there. And some of these blog about more than recipes, but have many other great topics you can read about.

I love how creative these recipes are.
I know, so many wonderful ideas!
Wow, these desserts all look so good! We don’t celebrate 4th of July in the UK (obviously!) but I may have to make some of these anyway…
Hah, so true! But there are some delicious looking recipes here and they are so pretty!
Wow! I need to be invited to parties at your house. The different ideas are marvelous and I can’t to try a few of them. Pinning!
I want to try all of these out at some point! They all look so delicious.
Love the red, white, and blue colors on all these treats! So creative!
I know, it’s so fun to have all the wonderful colors.
I love that it’s strawberries and blueberries for most of the fruit! These are sound delicious, especially the ones with cream cheese!
I know, they are some of my favorite fruits, so I would easily make so many of these since I also love cream cheese.
Great suggestions! I love the list of desserts you’ve shared. They all look so… tempting!!
It’s so hard, I want to make all of these!
I really love the cookies and the cake pops! Those are so fun! I always want to get apple pie on the 4th too!
I’ve tried making cake pops before and it failed. But these are so cute and fun!
I love that most of the recipes you share here are fruit based! In my family, summer means a lot of fruit. These all look so yummy.
Summer means fruit for us, too! It’s such a great way to feel healthy while having delicious desserts.
These look amazing and super cute!!! Perfect for the 4th of July. Also, they look delicious…Very creative. Thank you for sharing.
I know, so many great ideas and yummy-looking desserts.
These all look so pretty! I think the cherry cream cheese pie would be the first one I try!
That was one of the ones that I looked at to try to make soon, too!
I know someone who did something similar to those jello cups in a sheet pan for the fourth. Was so delicious. Although I really think these are cuter with the cups. We might have to try out making these this fourth.
The cups are great because they are individual servings and easy to grab.
We don’t celebrate July 4th here as it is a normal day in Japan (and even if I am an American, I just don’t celebrate it). But, I would love to try to make these desserts, especially the Dessert Lasagna.
I totally understand not celebrating the day like we do, but there are so many delicious desserts here!
Oooo so many awesome ideas for the 4th!!! I’m actually writing up my menu today, so I’m glad I stumbled upon this!!!
Oh, how perfect! I’d love to see photos if you make one, just tag me on instagram if you post them!
O wow these looks absolutely gorgeous. I would love to be a guest at your event.
I would love to have you!
Awesome blog! Love the recipes and will absolutely try these someday. Thanks for sharing!
