35 of THE BEST 4th of July Dessert Ideas

We’re on the 4th of July countdown around here.  We absolutely love this whole summer thing…..but absolutely ADORE the 4th of July.  I know some of you from other countries must be REALLY ready for July 5th, so all of us here in the U.S. will knock it off with the Red White & Blue stuff……but just give us a few more days. ;)


So for those of you headed to a BBQ with friends, a small gathering at home, or are traveling this weekend, DON’T FORGET THE DESSERT!!! It’s kinda the best part! :)


Here are some really great ideas that I’ve gathered up….while trying to decide on what to bring myself.  And mmmmm, they look so good!
