Celebrate Independence Day With Our Favorite Fourth of July Treats!

Celebrate Independence Day With Our Favorite Fourth of July Treats!This Fourth of July, it's time for you to show your people your patriotic food skills! All the ideas posted below are simple and easy to make and are sure to please your crowd.  Choose from fruit based treats or sugary sweet delights.   

Grab a pen and paper! It's time to celebrate independence day with our favorite fourth of July treats!

Fruit Slice Pizza

This is a great alternative to traditional sugar highs and sheet cakes! It's a quite simple recipe! Simply lay out a thin layer of cookie dough on a cookie sheet and bake.  When done and still warm, place assorted sliced fruits (maybe strawberries, blueberries and bananas) on the cookie as it cools and sets.  Top with a thin layer of vanilla yogurt, whipped cream or ice cream for a finishing sweet touch!
Kettle Corn
This one is an easy July 4 themed spin on kettle corn. All you need to do is make your popcorn like you normally would but add food coloring! For a healthier version, make beet juice and toss the kernels in the juice before you pop! Add salt and enjoy!

Cake Pops

At Ontario Bakery, we LOVE our cake pops. So why not get some custom cake pops made just for your celebration? If you are in the mood to do it yourself, mix red, white and blue icing with various patriotic sprinkles and decorations. Pop them on a stick or display as an American flag. If that feels like too much, just give us a call and we'll take care of it for you, so you can relax!

Fruit Skewers

Fruit skewers are a fabulous healthy option and they're simple too! These snacks are a great alternative to all the heavy potato salad, burgers, and potato chips that are normally found at barbecues. Present the fruit skewers as your table’s centerpiece, dip the fruit in chocolate to make a sweet treat, and let your kids get in on the action by creating an assembly station.

Explosive Cake

While we don't recommend your cake really explode, it's a great idea to run with!  We would be happy to do create this custom cake for you or you can do it yourself! A full recipe can be found on the blog Cooking With Sugar- where she gives all the details on how she went about making this festive cake. Everyone will be thrilled to see your skill or at least choice in dessert! 

Flag Fruit Platter

If you show up to a Fourth of July party with this plate in hand, we guarantee that people will be impressed! This patriotic platter is amazing because it's SO easy to do! All thats needed are the right sliced up colors organized into a flag on a plate or platter.  Feel free to use cheese, bananas or even pineapple for the white space! 
We are excited for you to enjoy this holiday in the best way way possible and we at Ontario Bakery are ready to bake up what you dream up this independence day!
