12 Patrotic Desserts

Impress Your Guests With These Red, White and Blue Treats


Patriotic desserts are a great way to add a unique touch of Americana to your holiday parties, FRG meetings, deployment homecomings, or other military family functions. If you need a few ideas for a red, white and blue treat, give one (or more) of these recipes a try.

Super-Quick and Easy
If time is not on your side and you need a quick patriotic dessert, simply purchase a white-frosted cake or cupcakes and decorate them with red, white, and blue M&Ms or sprinkles. Another option is to insert mini toothpick flags in the center of the cupcakes or around the cake's border.
