The 4th of July is quickly approaching and I knew that a seasonal, patriotic dessert was most definitely in order! When I thought about picnics and get togethers and BBQs, I decided that whatever sweet treat I made would need to be bite-sized, easy to transport, delicious and of course, red, white and blue! I immediately thought cookie cups and cake mix cookies (two of my favorite things!) and came up with these red, white & blue cookie cups!!
What I love about cake mix cookie cups is that I generally have all the ingredients on hand (what, you don’t have six varieties of cake mix on hand at all times?!) and each cake mix yields anywhere from 36 -40 cookie cups! These are pretty much a go-to party dessert in our house! And these pint-sized patriotic treats start with a red velvet cake mix, get filled with a no-bake cheesecake filling and topped with a plump, ripe blueberry (or sprinkles!) – YUM!
Aren’t they fun? Pretty much the perfect two bites with a rich chocolate-y cookie, smooth creamy cheesecake and the tart tang from a blueberry! They definitely add a festive touch to any patriotic party!
How about a few more spirited, patriotic desserts? Enjoy these from shaken together + friends!
