The Fourth is such a magical holiday! I love the energy of the whole day and I even love the sunburn I usually come home with. However, if you’re like me, you end up doing SOMETHING last-minute on the 4th! And since you can’t go to a party empty-handed, try any one of these super easy (and super delicious) last minute 4th Of July desserts.
Last Minute 4th Of July Desserts
-1 cup graham cracker crumbs (about 8 crackers)
-1/2 cup coarsely chopped pretzel sticks
-8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter, melted
-1/2 cup Fisher Nuts pecans, coarsely chopped
-1/4 cup sugar
-16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
-8 ounce container frozen whipped topping, thawed
-14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Red White and Blue Ice Cream Floats
-1/4 cup strawberries quartered
-1/4 cup blueberries
-3 scoops vanilla ice cream
-1/2 cup strawberry soda
-1/2 cup lemon-lime soda
Star Spangled Rice Krispie Treats
Step One: Divide your supplies into three separate bowls for three separate Rice Krispies layers. Next, add the marshmallows and margarine to a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high until marshmallows are large and hot to the touch.
Patriotic Oreo Pops
Step One: Melt some white candies, heating regularly so the candy stays runny. Twist and separate the oreo cookies so they are split into two halves. Place a hearty dollop of the melted candy on the inside of the Oreo, and place a lollipop stick on it, sandwiching the stick between both halves of the Oreos. Let the candy dry before moving on. Or, skip this whole step and move on to step two.
