When you are a military family, you really don't need much of an excuse to break out the the flag, red, white, and blue decorations, and patriotic desserts and snacks. Hail and Farewell parties, Change of Commands, Homecomings, and Retirement Ceremonies. We really do red, white, and blue all year round long! So it is nice when the rest of the country decides to join us in our patriotic celebrations on President's Day, 4th of July, Flag Day, Memorial Day, and Veteran's Day.
No matter why you need a red, white, and blue treat – a President's Day class party at your child's school, a Captain America birthday party for your son, or a 4th of July block party with your neighbors, you will find inspiration from the list of patriotic desserts and snacks below.
The patriotic dessert recipes below are all easy to make and most come together in a short amount of time with minimal preparations required.
You can also take a star shaped cookie cutter to your favorite cookie, brownie, or cake and quickly turn an ordinary dessert recipe into a patriotic treat. And don't forget that in a pinch, you can simply add strawberries and blueberries to just about any treat and you instantly have a patriotic dessert.
