Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches
You start this ice cream sandwich with a yummy chocolate cookie of your choosing or use the recipe here and top it with red white and blue M&M’s. Next, fill the cooled cookies with your favorite ice cream. Lastly, roll the edges of the cookies in festive red white and blue sprinkles. An eye pleasing and super tasty dessert for the 4th.
Flag Cake Dessert
If you are going for simple on the outside and show stopper on the inside this Betty Crocker cake is for you. It requires you to make 3 cakes and then assemble it in such a way that you get a flag when you cut into it. It can be hard to get a good red color when using liquid food coloring. Try using paste/gel food coloring instead to get the deep blue and dark red for this flag cake.
