4th of July Treats! - Charleston Moms Network


Need a last-minute festive treat for a 4th of July party? These Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Cones from Maria Provenzano require are a perfect pick with almost no prep. Simply fill the cones with your favorite ice cream or add them to an ice cream bar for a DIY dessert activity. For more red, white and blue desserts, we love Maria’s Rice Krispie Flag Cake, Grilled Pound Cake with Mason Jar Whipped Cream, and Monster Cookies with M&Ms.

For more entertaining tips and recipes, pick up a copy of Maria’s cookbook, Everyday Celebrations from Scratch and follow her on Instagram.
