Tips for Making the Best 4th of July Desserts

  • Make it colorful. There’s something so fun about seeing those vibrant red, white and blue colors. Add some pizazz to your dessert by using patriotic M&M’s, sprinkles, fresh mixed berries or even red and blue food coloring. You can even decorate your dessert in the shape of an American flag.
  • Prepare in advance. Holidays can get a little hectic, so preparing your dessert in advance can free up a little more of your time on the big day. Many of these recipes can easily be made ahead of time, making your life a little less chaotic the day of!
  • Keep it refreshing. With hot temps outside, your guests will be craving a refreshing treat to cool off with. Aim to have at least one chilled or frozen dessert to help your guests beat the heat. Having a pitcher of blueberry lemonade on hand is always a great idea too!
  • Toppings. Don’t forget about of the delicious dessert toppings! Make sure to have some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream handy for serving. A drizzle of hot fudge, caramel sauce or a simple sprinkle of chopped nuts can go a long way on top of your desserts.


Can I prepare these desserts in advance of my Fourth of July celebration?

For most 4th of July desserts you can prepare them a day or two in advance of the holiday. Always check each recipe though for specific storage instructions. Cakes, cupcakes and cookies should be stored covered at room temperature, frozen desserts will need to stay frozen and fruit-based desserts will often need to be refrigerated, so plan accordingly.

What if my guests have dietary restrictions?

It’s easy to accomodate guests with dietary restrictions as more and more vegan and gluten-free desserts become readily available at grocery stores. Also check each recipe to determine if you can make it from scratch with a few modifications. For dairy allergies, serving a rainbow fruit platter is always a welcome and easy dessert.

How should I serve my desserts for the 4th of July?

If you want to ensure that your desserts look as good as they taste presentation is key! Add patriotic-themed touches in the way of plates, napkins, red, white and blue serving dishes or even a few toothpick American flags added to the desserts as a patriotic topping.

What if I don’t have time to make a dessert from scratch?

Don’t stress! Store-bought is totally okay and there are many festive options this time of the year at the store to choose from. Add some additional patriotic sprinkles or jazz up cupcakes or cookies with homemade frosting and cute themed decorations.

When it comes to easy 4th of July desserts these red white and blue rice krispie treats are one of the best fun and festive recipe that are decked out in patriotic colors and a favorite with both kids and adults alike.
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 24


  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 15 cups mini marshmallows , about 2 bags
  • 9 cups rice krispies
  • ¼ cup festive sprinkles , optional
  • ½ cup M&M’s , optional
  • red and blue food coloring


  • Butter a 9×13″ dish and set aside.
  • Place 2 Tablespoons butter and 5 cups of marshmallows in 3 separate microwavable bowls. Cook the first bowl for 1 minute and then stir. Cook an additional 15 seconds if needed and then stir in the blue food coloring.
  • Once the mixture is smooth, stir in 3 cups of rice krispies until combined. Then press into the bottom of the dish. You can either butter your hands or use a piece of wax paper to push down the layers. Repeat with the 2nd layer and red food coloring. Repeat for the top layer with no food coloring.
  • Top immediately with sprinkles and M&M’s if desired. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve. Butter your knife (I find a plastic knife works best) and then cut into squares. Enjoy! 


Melting on stove: You can melt the butter and marshmallows on the stove if preferred, but I’d still recommend dividing it into 3 batches.
Decorations: Instead of cutting into squares, you can use a star shaped cookie cutter for a more festive touch. You could also skip dying the layers and simply decorate with festive M&M’s and sprinkles on top.
