5 Frozen 4th of July Dessert Recipes for Your Backyard BBQ

Last week we published our article 5 Easy No-Bake 4th of July Desserts, and with the 4th just a few days away, it was relatively popular.  The idea was that the no-bake patriotic desserts would keep your kitchen cool and save time.  With that same mindset of staying cool, I’m compiling a list of some of the best frozen 4th of July recipes available.  Beat the heat as you enjoy the fireworks with these 5 frozen 4th of July dessert recipes.

These DIY ice cream sandwiches are bound to be a hit with your guests.  Combining chocolate cookies and vanilla ice cream is great idea in itself, but when you add some red, white, and blue m&m’s and sprinkles, this treat becomes the ultimate 4th of July dessert.  This idea can also be used as a hack for store bought ice cream sandwiches.  Just unwrap, cover in sprinkles, and serve.
