Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Fifth Edition)

4th-of-July-party-table

Now that summer is around the corner and Father’s Day is over, it’s on to prepare for the 4th of July, or Independence Day. Normally, this would inspire patriotism, fireworks, and anything red, white, and blue. However, during the dark times of the Trump administration, it’s very difficult for me to get pumped with patriotic pride except when it comes to, “Impeach the Motherfucker.” Anyway, during this time, you’ll find plenty of stores across the country filled with red, white, and blue patriotic decorations, flags, and paper plates. In addition, the 4th of July is a time of fireworks and barbecues. And nothing inspires patriotic devotion to the flag like some star-spangled treats, which is where I come in. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of star-spangled 4th of July treats.

  1. Don’t forget to add blueberries to your red and white cheesecakes.
