If you have followed my blog for more than a year, you probably know that The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. I can’t even really explain why. Probably because I don’t have to do decorations, there are no gifts to buy or wrap, and we have a blast going to the and then stuffing our faces. We eat exactly what we want to eat and hang out with people we love. And our kids run around all day long tiring themselves out.

Here are some great Red White and Blue recipes to make your Fourth of July celebrations even more festive! Everything from side dishes to desserts to cocktails. I’ve got you covered.

FOURTH OF JULY DESSERTS

It is so fun making great Fourth of July desserts. There is something about red white and blue sprinkles that make me so happy!

Three Red, White, and Blue Fudge are stacked up on top of each other showing the distinct colored layers and topped with red, white, and blue sprinkles.

This one is so easy that even the kids can make it!

Red White and Blue Velvet Cheesecake Cake

A slice of the Red White and Blue Velvet Cheesecake Cake shows the distinct layers of red, white, and blue and frosted with white frosting. On the top and the bottom edge of the cake, some frosting was piped with a star tip and topped with red, white, and blue sprinkles.

The flavors of red velvet blend perfectly with an amazing cheesecake and my perfect vanilla buttercream frosting!
