In the spirit of 4th of July - and the interest in satisfying sweet, sugar-and-spice-and-everything-nice cravings - I've been digging up some links to delicious red, white, and blue holiday desserts from around the web.
Here's what I got...
+ firecracker dipped pretzel rods
+ 4th of July layered flag cake (complete with flag built into the layers)
+ "mini" banana splits
+ stained glass jello stars
+ frozen chocolate covered bananas
+ vanilla raspberry sundaes with spoon-shaped cookies
+ ideal for kids: rice Krispy treat sparklers
+ red, white, blue, and brownie fruit kebabs
+ cherry and blueberry pies in a jar
