My favorite holiday is this week! I’ve always loved the 4th of July – the parades, the patriotism, the fireworks, the flags, the friends…and of course, the food!
Typically, our Independence Day starts with our local parade, which anyone in our community who is not at the cabin attends. (Some people – myself notincluded – reserve their spots the night before.) When the veterans go by, I can pretty much guarantee Max will turn to me and say, “Mom, you’re crying aren’t you?” Yes, Max I am…can’t help it.
After the parade, it’s off to my friend Ann’s house for her family’s annual 4th of July party. (Ann is practically a party-throwing professional and also probably the most organized person I know. She will be making future appearances in this blog.)
Anyhow, back to the party: While you don’t have to bring anything to this event, most people do…so this year, I’m planning on bringing my super-easy, crowd-pleasing dessert. (It’s so easy it’s almost embarrassing, but like I said, everyone loves it so I take all the credit for preparing such a delicious sweet treat.) And because of my generous nature, I’m giving you – my loyal blog reader – the secret “recipe.” Let’s call it “Angie’s Incredible Independence Day Delicious Delicacies.” What? Too much? OK, how about “Brownie Bites with Berries.”
Here’s what you need to be the star of your 4th of July festivities:
- Brownie bites
- Cream cheese frosting (white)
- Raspberries and blueberries
Put a bit of frosting on each brownie bite and top with either a raspberry or blueberry. That’s it. Then, you put them on a cute red, white and blue plate and get ready to hear the most oohs and ahhs…until the fireworks, that is!
