Patriotic Desserts

Well the other day I saw a big pan my mom had and thought it would be good to make the yogurt pie recipe into one big one and into a flag since the 4th of July was coming up. This week I was trying to get my ingredients, blueberries and whipped cream are extremely difficult to get in this country and especially since I’m in a small town. I was able to get yogurt, strawberries, gelatin and some cookies to crush to make the crust, I usually buy the ready made crusts. I had to look for ways to substitute or make my own whipped cream, I used a recipe I found online.

Only had to use one package of cookies for the crust.

Would’ve been better to use a 9×13 because clearly this pan was bigger.

I made the whipped cream in a blender.

Dissolved the gelatin.

Spread it on the crust then to the fridge it went.

Used strawberries for the red stripes, melted white chocolate for the white stripes and blue candy for the blue area.

Dipped some strawberries in white chocolate and then blue sprinkles for the striped effect. Not to bad for my first attempt even though my dad bought me cookies n cream instead of plain white chocolate, there wasn’t any other.

I had leftover coconut milk so I decided to make piña coladas, still in the patriotic spirit.

Christmas Popcorn Balls
