BRIGHTON, Mich - After a tremendously dreadful winter, finally the unofficial start of summer is here! How will you spend your Memorial Day weekend? Do your plans include hosting or attending a BBQ? Or perhaps you are simply relaxing with the family? Regardless of your weekend's festivities, we are here to help ensure your tummy is fully satisfied with help from one of these Patriotic Desserts for Your Memorial Day! This recipe lineup includes various types of desserts from pie to ice cream and a few requiring hardly any effort at all. Don't forget, you can see these recipes and much more on our Pinterest page. Enjoy!
Stars and Stripes Pie: No need to hem and haw over a cheery or blueberry pie this weekend! Enjoy the best of both worlds with this delicious (and very patriotic might we add) cherry and blueberry pie!
S'mores on a Stick: When summer rolls around, one of the first things that come to people's minds are campfires! Of course, where there is a campfire, there just has to be a s'more. This "no flame required" recipe gives the s'more a pretty "cool" twist.
Red, White and Blueberry Cheesecake Bars: If you plan on taking a dish to pass this weekend, these cheesecake bars are a great choice. Rather than having to prepare an entire cheesecake, and let's face it people tend to be more hesitant to be the first to cut the cake, you can have the option to make the bars as big or small as you would like.
Spangled Sandwich Pops: Skewer a mini ice-cream sandwich onto a popsicle stick, press the sides onto a plate of sprinkles and tah-dah! Super easy and will go over exceptionally well with kids!
Red, White and Blueberry Trifle: Don't be fooled, this recipe is much easier than it appears. This sweet treat is very light, so you can enjoy a heftier portion without the extra guilt!
No matter where you are or who you are with, we hope you are able to enjoy one of these Patriotic Desserts on Your Memorial Day weekend. Also, we would like to recognize all of the men and women who have served our country. Thank you for all that you do! Have a terrific weekend, everyone!
