The Fourth of July is fast approaching, and we're here to help! Bring any of these insanely creative sweet treats to the festivities this weekend (or just make them for yourself, let's be real) and instantly win over the hearts and minds of anyone who tastes them.
Throw in some whipped cream vodka, and you're good to go.
Simple, festive and delicious.
Candy-coated cherries soaked in vanilla vodka – yum! Alternately, you can make them virgin by skipping the booze and soaking them in a little vanilla extract.
They look gorgeous and are easier to decorate than you might think. If you want to go the extra mile, slap an American flag on these heavenly sweet potato donuts.
What's more American than apple pie? American flag-covered apple pie cookies, of course!
You can also deep fry your apple pie to reach maximum American.
Don't bring a boring fruit salad! Bring herbed watermelon, jicama, cucumber and berries instead! You can even crumble some feta over the top for an extra savory punch.
We can't decide if these are more adorable or delicious. We'll go with both.
It doesn't get any more American than fried food.
Surprisingly tasty. Drizzle with blueberry syrup for Uncle Sam bonus points.
Woah! Feel free to make it easier on yourself and reduce the number of stripes (layers) if need be.
Feel free to add berries if you want to fit the red, white and blue color scheme for this delicious Native American treat.
