4th-of-July-Fruit-Cones-by-Bakers-Royale

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.

S’more Slutty Brownies by What’s Gaby Cooking (the reigning slutty brownie queen, btw.  Check out all of her variations).  S’mores are always a summertime staple so why not up the ante?

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.

Do you have any favorite 4th of July or summertime treats?  Link up in the comments!

What a great idea to use cones as salad containers. Brilliant. Hope I remember this comes next party.
My recipe is a vegan and a gluten free brownie as we are on a clean eating diet for the next few weeks. Who says you can not still enjoy dessert?

Such a fun idea, right? How did the brownies turn out? I love the clean ones that are made from cocoa, dates and nuts. xo . t

@Agnes, We simply loved them. Mostly because you eat 2 at the most. THAT IS IT! How is that for self restraint?!Well, mostly it is lack of sugar and dark chocolaty taste that curb the cravings. I must try adding some dates. Great idea. Cheers A.
