Happy Fri-YAY and almost long weekend loves!!! It’s almost here! It’s almost here!! Who else is excited for the long weekend? I have been a little under the weather the past few days with the stomach bug, but am hoping to be back in full force by Sunday so I can get my Merica’ on with the fam!! Since the weekend is almost upon us, I thought I share two super easy and quick desserts you can throw together for your weekend BBQs pool parties. Plus, they look super fancy…you’ll like damn Martha Stewart rolling up to the partayyyyyy. Read on to find out how what you’ll need and how to make these festive and fun desserts.
Fruity Flag Dessert
What you’ll need:
Serving Tray (a patriotic one if you are feeling #extra)
One pint blackberries (or blueberries)
One pint raspberries
Bag of miniature marshmallows
For the first 5 skewers:
Thread 4 blackberries or blueberries on the skewer first
Then thread a two raspberries and one marshmallows, alternating raspberry, marshmallow, raspberry
For the remaining 7 skewers:
Alternate Threading 4 raspberries and 3 marshmallows, starting with the raspberry
*After all skewers are complete, I lay them all out and carefully “fix” them so that the marshmallows line up horizontally so it looks like an American Flag
Cover and chill in fridge until ready to serve. Enjoy
What you’ll need:
White cake mix or prepackaged lady fingers
One pint strawberries
One pint blackberries or blueberries
Whipped cream or Cool Whip
Stemless wine goblets or any other glass cups/bowls
Bake cake according to back of package. Let cool completely.
Cut cake into small one inch squares
Layer 3-5 cake squares into the bottom of glass
Next add a thick layer of whipped cream or Cool Whip
Then, add a layer of sliced strawberries
Next, add a second layer of whipped cream or Cool Whip on top of the strawberries.
Top with blackberries or blueberries
Serve immediately or chill in fridge until ready to serve. Enjoy
*You can also vary this by making it one large dessert in a trifle dish. It looks equally as pretty and is easier to transport if you are traveling to a BBQ!
