The 4th of July weekend is almost here! The list of things we’re excited for is almost endless: festive parades, backyard BBQs, fireworks displays, grilled meats, cold beverages, sunshine (finally!), sparklers, hot dogs, ice cream, family time…we could go on forever.

Whether you’re hosting a patriotic party, spending some quiet time with family, or attending a get-together, you’re bound to be inspired by something in our list of 4th of July-themed foods that are fun to make and sure to impress. And, just because it’s a holiday, we’re starting with dessert first.
