Mini Berry S’mores Sundaes.
Mini graham cracker crusts topped with rich vanilla ice cream, fresh blueberries, sweet strawberries, creamy white chocolate chips and toasted marshmallows. A patriotic red, white and blue dessert to celebrate our Independence Day.
Mini Berry S’mores Sundaes are the perfect little kid-friendly treat to savor at your 4th of July picnics while watching the fireworks. Or make them for any upcoming summer party. Because everyone loves ice cream, berries and marshmallows!
These sundaes come together in just minutes – so you can easily feed a crowd of little (or big … adult) kids. There’s no cooking involved. The most time consuming step is washing the berries!
If you don’t have a culinary blowtorch (ours is below), they are a great kitchen tool – especially for desserts like this, creme brûlée, hot chocolate, etc. Anything you want to lightly toast or char quickly. We got this one on amazon for maybe $20. If you don’t have a blowtorch, not a problem.
Instead, lightly toast the marshmallows over a bonfire (if you have one going) or put them in a single layer on a baking sheet in the oven and very carefully broil (with the oven partially open and keeping a very close eye on them … they’ll burn quickly) until lightly toasted on their tops. Then, assemble the sundaes.
What’s on your 4th of July menu?
We’ll be firing up the grill and most likely grilling some bascis like corn on the cob and hot dogs or burgers/bella burgers. Then, gotta have the watermelon and these Mini Berry S’mores Sundaes for dessert.
We’ll be watching the fireworks locally here – it’ll be interesting to see how Lucca likes (or not) them. Last year he didn’t understand/notice them going off. Before the 4th, on Sunday, there’s an adorable kids bike parade in our neighborhood. All the kiddos decorate their bikes (and selves) in red, white and blue and ride through the neighborhood. Lucca can’t ride a bike yet, so we’ll be pulling his decorated red wagon.
Hope you & yours have a great 4th of July!!
