9 Now Desserts for a Patriotic July 4th

The 4th of July is the BEST day of the summer in my opinion. I love celebrating our country with friends, family, and people in my community. I am so happy that we can celebrate safely this year!! I missed the big celebrations so much last year. The food is probably the best part of July 4th…am I wrong? Making a fun patriotic treat/dessert is one of my favorite traditions. Usually I just make a berry pie or some sort of flag cake, but this year I want to try something new and different. I rounded up 9 of the best patriotic and delicious desserts out there! Scroll through, find your favorite, and make it this year!
