Patriotic desserts for 4th of July

As much as I love BBQ foods, on 4th of July I’m always the most excited about the desserts. The patriotic theme always makes things fun and colorful. This collection of creative desserts were compiled with the help of our fellow bloggers. Click the recipe link to see the full details and ingredients.

Serve It With Ice Cream

Every summer dessert is better with a scoop of ice cream on the side. So, dust off the ice cream maker and start with this homemade vanilla ice cream. It has a custard-style base that comes out deliciously scoopable and can be the starting block for amazing flavors like chocolate chocolate chip ice creamcookies and creammint chocolate chip.

What Ice Cream Maker to Use?

Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker Machine, 1.5 Quart Sorbet, Frozen Yogurt Maker, Double Insulated, White, ICE-21P1
CUISINART Ice Cream Maker, Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt Machine, 2-Qt. Double-Insulated Freezer Bowl, Silver, ICE30BCP1

If you’re really wanting to make great ice cream at home, you have to invest in an ice cream maker. I’ve had the same one for many years and it’s never made a bad ice cream.

The one I recommend is the Cuisinart 1.5 quart ice cream maker. It comes in a few different colors and it looks neat and tidy. You just have to keep to recipes that are small enough to fit, which shouldn’t be a problem.

The Cuisinart ICE-70 Electronic Ice Cream Maker is a slightly more professional model that’s 2 quarts and has an LCD screen and 3 settings plus an improved paddle with faster processing time.
