4th of July Desserts

Mmmm.  Dessert.  No good meal is complete without a good dessert.  No good holiday is complete without a good meal.  So, what I’m saying is… bring on the dessert!  I look forward to 4th of July BBQ’s because I always walk away from the celebration with at least one new recipe idea.  Here are some great dessert ideas I found on my favorite site, pinterest.

Red, White and Blue Rocket Popsicle Cupcakes

These red, white and blue rocket popsicle cupcakes are almost too cute to eat.  Almost…  Beautiful and festive — perfect for a 4th of July BBQ celebration.

Patriotic Berry Trifle

I’ve never made a trifle, but after seeing how good looking and (maybe) simple they are to make, I think I may need to try it this year.  Again, I’m loving the blue berries and strawberries.  As long as you’ve got some fruit in the dessert then I’m guessing it’s healthy and you’re OK to get seconds.
