4th of July Treats
Fourth of July weekend, a summer holiday filled with barbecues, picnics, beach gatherings with family and friends. It’s even more exciting this year! You’ll be making memories by relaxing, playing, eating and/or watching fireworks.
Regardless where you’re at celebrating, food brings everyone together. One part of the meal I look forward to is the dessert! Here are my top four favorite treats for 4th of July!
Four Favorite Treats
Not your normal treats to bring to a cookout, but guaranteed everyone will enjoy throughout the day.
First 4th of July treat is the pavlova. Meringue base with tasty curds in the center. Topped with a complimenting mousseline.
In the photo above is a pineapple strawberry jelly with a pineapple strawberry mousseline on a rose colored vanilla flavored meringue. Also pictured is a banana curd with a peanut butter chocolate mousseline on a blue colored vanilla flavored meringue.
2. Stuffed Cookies
Second is the stuffed cookies! Chocolate chip cookies are such a classic treat. Stuff it with marshmallow and you’ll have the tastiest cookie!
Eating it fresh out of the oven with vanilla ice cream and it’s heaven!
3. Red Velvet Cinnamon Rolls
Red Velvet cinnamon rolls are perfect in the middle of the afternoon. Topped with a delicious cream cheese buttercream frosting!
The cinnamon roll itself already brings the festive red and the flavor will definitely spark your taste buds!
4. Cream Puffs
Lastly are some cream puffs! Personally love these served chilled. Even frozen, the cream pastry and mousseline melts in your mouth.
So easy to eat at least four or more of these pastries.
Tasty and Colorful
So many more desserts to share, but these four treats for the Fourth will keep you coming back for more. Believe it or not these are not as sweet as they may look. The recipes from How to Cake It are more tasty than sweet. So hard to explain, but you’ll understand once you eat them!
Have a great holiday weekend! You can find more of my baking journey here!
