Celebrate the 4th of July with 6 Patriotic Dessert Ideas

There is nothing like those annual 4th of July flag cakes, ice creams, and patriotic desserts galore eaten outside with a sparkler in hand.

This celebration comes only once a year and attention deserves to be paid. To get the patriotic juices flowing, here are some easy and delicious 4th of July dessert ideas.

Ice cream cones. A backyard classic. Dip each cone rim in Fancy Melting Candy (red, white, and blue to keep things festive), and then top with your favorite patriotic sprinkle blend.

These are as delicious as they are easy (and are a crowd favorite for a good reason). Dip fresh strawberries in red, white, and blue melting candy. Swap colors to make fun designs, and finally add the finishing touches with a patriotic sprinkle blend.

Red, white, and blue cake on the 4th of July is as much of a staple as the fireworks. The beauty of this easy patriotic dessert is that you can use any shape of mold you fancy.

First, melt red, white, and blue Fancy Melting Candy. Squeeze each color into a different part of the mold, and distribute around the sides and edges with a brush. Push the cakesicle sticks into their slots. Let sit until the melting candy hardens (about 5-15 minutes, depending on amount used).

Once hardened, add your desired filling. This can be cake, cake pop dough, mashed Oreos, etc. Seal with melting candy and allow to harden again.

Add a dusting of Fancy Edible Glitter for a signature wow-factor.

4. BOOZY JELLO SHOT POPSICLES

Make room in your 4th of July treats for the jello shot in its fifth year of undergrad.

Add Sapphire Blue Fancy Edible Glitter and liquor into your jello mix. Stick the popsicle sticks in each slot of a mini cakesicle mold and fill with jello mixture. Allow to set.

Finish off with a dusting of edilble glitter and N-A-S-A Fancy Sugar. 

5. PATRIOTIC OREO POPS

Sometimes the easiest 4th of July desserts are the most rewarding. Spread red, white, and blue melting candy into the Halle Round Silicone Mold. Allow to set, and then place a whole Oreo (or desired filling) in each of the four cavities. Seal with Fancy Melting Candy and set aside to harden.

Drizzle with remaining melting candy and top with patriotic sprinkles.
