Red, White, and Blue are not just for your July 4th outfits and decor; you can also deck out your desserts to spread freedom.

Whether you are having a large barbecue or a small intimate party, these desserts shine bright for family and friends. And don't worry! I chose desserts for those who want to get their hands dirty in the kitchen and whip up a new recipe, and also a few ideas for my no-bake friends who wish for a delicious treat without all the headache.
