Are you in full swing planning for the fourth? I tend to take the path of tradition and always make the same thing, with a wish to try new things. I tend to over complicate. Can you relate? That only leaves me leaning on my old stand bys. So, I figured simple is the secret to branching out. So I’m sharing four treats to try for the fourth of July.
The other week, I happened to see these donut ice cream sandwiches floating around instagram. I instantly put them on my summer list, which I should confess is just a noted freeze frame in the brain. Anyhow, I figured the 4th of July might be the perfect time to try these breakfast desert creations! I once saw, my most favorite, Nigella, scoop out two generous portions of coffee gelato and squidge them between two brioche buns and proceed to eat it like a burger. A little odd, but mostly intriguing. And, she says it’s done this way in Italy, so there’s that. Thank you Paper Stich Blog for this crazy good looking idea. I’m sure I’ll have more thanks, after I give it a try.

How cute and simple are these fruit salad cones by Bakers Royale? My kids would love these. I can count on anything with cones being a hit.
These 4th of July Fruit Kabobs from The Baby Bump Diaries could not be any simpler. But, that is what I’m going for these days….simple. I’ve made these before and I can atteset they were a hit with both kids and grown-ups alike.
