4th of July Red White and Blue Marshmallow Pops

These are 4th of July Marshmallow Pops with a glamorous story. They are actually somewhat famous.

What do you bring when attending a Fourth of July party hosted by woman with Food Network Show and several New York Times best selling cookbooks? Yes, you guessed it. A glimmering red, white and blue dessert.

I made these for Ree who is a great cook, and a very well-known one at that. I wanted to impress her, to dazzle her with my most favorite cake ever, but then remembered I was in my little tiny home town.

My dazzle was all a frazzle, because things are much slower where I come from. Grocery stores close at dinner time, which put a damper on my last minute planning.

With little time to spare and some lollipop sticks, I brought with me from Dallas, I headed to the store to see what I could come up with.

Since all I could find were basic red and blue sprinkles, that pretty much made up my mind. No yummy homemade cake recipe, but I could sure make something basic look pretty darn cute. Yes, I would dazzle her with my cuteness!!

4th of July Dessert Marshmallow Pops Recipe

As I walked toward the party with my dazzling desserts, not only did Daisy the cow (who thinks she’s a dog) come very near to get a peek at the cuteness, but a big group of children as well.

They spotted the glimmering goods and sprung out of nowhere, bouncing off of trampolines and fences with hands a grabbing. They were cute, but also just a bit scary. ha!

Ree saved me and my sugary treats by holding them high over her head and stashing them in her kitchen pantry to keep the kids out of them until dessert time. No wonder she cooks so much. I bet she has hidden sweets in her pantry plenty of times!

I also made Chocolate Cake Balls…

Good thing I had a plan for the adults too. Although I think these chocolate cake balls were gobbled up by the kids as well. As a matter of fact, I’m positive.

I was happy when the desserts came out later in the evening. They were gone in just a few seconds, but heck, they sure were cute!

Try them out at your 4th of July party and watch them disappear along with the fireworks.
