Red, White & Blue Treats...

I've been seeing so many fun July 4th (red, white and blue-themed, of course) treats on some of my favorite food blogs and I'm bound and determined to make at least one of these recipes (you can find the recipe links below each photo) for Saturday!

At first, I saw these "Happy Meals" around Father's Day and flipped out! Come on! The "hamburgers" are cupcakes, brownies and icing and the fries are made from sugar cookie dough! Oh dear! I just love them and think they'd be fun for this coming weekend!

Then I saw these Red, White & Blue Finger Jello treats and for heaven's sake, I LOVE all the layers! Don't they look delicious and festive?!

My eyes soaked these up too! I'm a huge cake/icing lover and these are surely scruptious-looking cupcakes! Love the swirled icing!

Or maybe these cheesecake bars with raspberries and blueberries?! These look so creamy and rich, don't they?

Last but not least, these are calling my name also! I just want to pick one up and try it now! Love the star shape!

Decisions, decisions!

What are you making this July 4th? Anything festive? Link me! I'd love to see!
