We are going to a cookout tomorrow and I been thinking about what I want to bring. It’s not 4th of July themed but we’re close enough. Plus, I was seeing tons of fun and festive ideas on Pinterest while I was deciding what to bring. I love to bring special foods to events like this and put some extra time and effort into decorations or presentation. However…I’m a mom now and I ain’t got time for that! I want to be fun and festive with something that’s quick and easy and requires very little effort but makes a big impact. Anybody else?! So I’ve found 10 quick and easy 4th of July desserts that will check off all the things.
All of these recipes are 30 minutes or less which I’m all about! I’m not trying to bake and decorate a 7 layer cake over here! And I just don’t have the patience for involved recipes like I used to. But I don’t want to just plop store bought red, white and blue cookies on the table either. (Even though I have before and #noregrets). So these 10 quick and easy 4th of July desserts will make it look like you tried so much harder than you actually did. That’s all I want in life really ha!
I’ve included pictures and links to the original recipe and blog for each!
