Who doesn't love a 4th of July celebration?

If you're anything like me, you LOVE a good theme! The 4th of July is one of the easiest, especially when you are talking food. And, my favorite things to make for celebrations are quick and easy. I've compiled a list of my red, white and blue go-to's!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Independence Pops

Mix blueberries and strawberries into vanilla greek yogurt. Spoon into a popsicle mold, and freeze for several hours. Enjoy!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ AmeriCupcakes

Make (or buy!) cupcakes, and frost with white frosting. Use red and blue sprinkles to top them off!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Flag Fruit Tray

Serve strawberries and blueberries with the easiest fruit dip you'll ever make - 8 oz. cream cheese blended with 15 0z. marshmallow cream. Get creative with your display!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Sparkler Kabobs

Alternate blueberries, strawberries and bananas (or marshmallows!)  on a skewer to create Sparkler Kabobs!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Watermelon Stars

You guessed it...using a star cookie cutter, theme out your watermelon!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Patriotic Pretzels

Dip pretzel rods in white chocolate, and decorate with blue and red sugar crystals.

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Firecracker Ice Cream Sandwiches

Dip the ice cream edges of the sandwich in blue and red sugar or sprinkles (you could even find those cute candy stars!). Just eat them fast before they melt

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Frozen Fireworks

Place strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries in an ice cube tray. Cover with water or juice and freeze for a fun treat for your drink!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Patriot Popcorn

Drizzle popcorn with red, white, and blue Meltaways (find them at Michael's!) on a cookie sheet. Once hardened, place in a bowl.

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Freedom Treats

This trick will work with all kinds of baked treats, from cookies to rice krispie treats! Take advantage of the patriotic holiday M & M's, and add them to the the recipe. Voila!
