Hey, Howdy, Hey, and welcome to a special Patriotic edition of SouthernPlate! With the Fourth coming up, I thought I’d share with you some fun foods we often make to celebrate this fun day with friends and family.
This is one of my go to treats when I want to make something quick and easy that will still dazzle guests!
Cake Pops and Cake Truffles are still all the rage! These come together so fast and look extra pretty on the dessert table!
The layers remain separated as you drink this delicious spritzer.
I’ve been making these for years but my family still thinks they’re so cool to see!
This is my husband’s favorite Strawberry Punch Bowl Cake – dressed up with blueberries for the Fourth!
Kids love these layered jello jars – and I love being able to make them days ahead of time! I just keep them in the fridge and bring them out when we’re ready. They travel like a dream, too!
We’ve recently been trying out different types of flavored gelatin. There are a lot of different types on the market!
There is something about a rice krispie treat that takes us back to being a kid again. These pops make them extra special.
I hope you get to enjoy some time with your friends and family this fourth!
