4th of July Desserts for a Patriotic Summer

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 really love the cookies and the cake pops! Those are so fun! I always want to get apple pie on the 4th too!

  3. These look amazing and super cute!!! Perfect for the 4th of July. Also, they look delicious…Very creative. Thank you for sharing.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Oooo so many awesome ideas for the 4th!!! I’m actually writing up my menu today, so I’m glad I stumbled upon this!!!
