Red, White and Blue Recipes

I am so thrilled that Marie has brought our blog back to life! Thank you for hanging in there with us. While she is on summer vacation, I am just heading into a packed summer also known as event season. This is why having a blogging partner is just the best!! We do have some fun ideas and projects in the works so we hope to share more with you soon!

My husband and I recently returned from a trip abroad (more on that later!) and we were excited to find an excuse to use some of our European candy. With summer in full swing and the fourth of July right around the corner, I wanted to get a jump start on some fun recipes.

Red, White and Blue Dessert

- Package of strawberries
- Package of blueberries

1. In a mixing bowl, whip up the cream until it makes a stiff peak. Add powered sugar.
2. Cut up strawberries into halves or fourths. Put a bottom layer of strawberries into a small bowl.
3. Add blueberries. Then add whipping cream.
4. Continue to layer each ingredient as desired.
5. Put Mars bars into a baggie and break them into pieces using a spoon.
6. Spread the top of the dessert with the candy and serve.
