4th of July jello cookies!

Hey friends! How is everyone? Just warning the next few days may be slow around here. My husband has this week off, so we’ve been busy working on projects and having fun with our fam! I promise to catch up on e-mails and questions after the holiday. :)

I do have a fun little post for you today. The kids and I made 4th of July jello cookies this weeekend. These are a daily request at our house!

You can find the recipe HERE. I didn’t push these ones down and they look more “round.” If you’d like the flower look, flatten the cookies with a cup before baking. They are quite a hit with the kiddos!

4th of july whoopie pies

I also made whoopie pies by adding a little frosting in the middle with sprinkles. :) Mmm…

Hope everyone has a fabulous 4th!

    Cute and yummy! I made the jello cookies for a rainbow birthday party, but the whoopie pies are a great idea!

    Too funny- my Emmeline and I used your Jello cookie recipe yesterday and made red, white, and blue cookies. Curious as to what you used for the white? I added some powdered lemonade to ours. Love the whoopie pie idea!

    What delicious looking sweet treats! If you get a chance to post to my link party that would be fantastic! The theme this week is patriotic and all that red, white and blue would go down well!
