Patriotic Gelatin SquaresCan you tell I’m pretty excited about Independence Day?  I’ve been having way too much fun testing red, white and blue desserts for our July 4th celebration picnic.  We usually spend the day at the beach and wait until the sun goes down to watch the spectacular fireworks display over the ocean.  I’t pretty special.
inDelightjelloThis weekend, I experimented with various gelatin flavors to create a red,white and blue themed dessert for that special day.  I used strawberry flavored gelatin for the red layer, berry blue flavored gelatin to make the bright blue layer and In Delight Sweet Cream coffee creamer with unflavored gelatin to make the delicious white creamy layer. Sweet Cream is inspired by sweet Cold Stone vanilla ice cream.  Perfect for my white creamy layer!
