With Memorial Day and the Fourth of July coming up, I’m thinking about the stars and stripes, the freedom we have in America, and the sacrifices it took to get those freedoms. I’m so grateful to live in a place with so much freedom, even if I do think America is taking some things to the extreme lately–and don’t even get me started about the elections! Mercy. It’s probably best to stick with desserts, right? These Patriotic Oreos are a quick and easy dessert to take to your Memorial Day of Fourth of July Gathering or Barbecue. They’ll be a hit with the kids and you can even include the kids in making them. My boys loved to help with the sprinkles!
Melt the white candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl, along with a tablespoon of shortening, heating for 20 second bursts and stirring in between until you reach a smooth consistency.
