Grandson (9) is going with family friends to the lake on the 4th. His parents will be coming up on the weekend. Thought we'd might make a fun dessert/treat for him to share.

My son loves this:

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 and 1/2 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) instant vanilla pudding
1 and 1/2 cups cool whip - divided
24 Nilla wafers, coarsely crumbled
1 and 1/2 cups blueberries and strawberries

Beat cream cheese until creamy. Slowly beat in milk. Add dry pudding mix, mix well. Whisk in one cup of cool whip. In bowl, layer half of the wafers, berries and pudding mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cool whip.

When I make it I do not measure precisely - I use more berries, cookies and cool whip, I think.

This can be made more health friendly by using sugar free pudding and cool whip.

Easy to make, pretty in clear bowl, makes lots.

Chocolate Eclair Cake - you can find it on All Recipe.com - whenever I make this dessert everyone loves it. I never have left overs.

PS - It is soooo easy to make!

All of my kids love the Jello Pudding Chocolate Eclair Cake. Yum, yum, yum... and so easy to make.

If you don't want to make that, you might try Rice Krispy treats. There used to be July 4th ideas for it.

Would he like a blueberry and strawberry pie with cool whip or vanilla ice cream?

Perhaps star shaped sugar cookies with either white frosting and red and blue sprinkles or just the sprinkles. Vanilla ice cream goes good with this too

I make this without the fruit and call it sand cake (a variation of dirt cake). Fun summer idea is put it in a sand bucket (dollar store) and use the shovel for the serving. I brought that to a back to school luncheon and I swear the teachers licked the bucket clean!!!

I found a an idea on pinterest to make "firecracker cupcakes". Make & frost cupcakes, then take red, white, & blue sprinkles and mix them with red & blue pop rocks. Sprinkle the mixture as a topping on the fristing so they will crackle in your mouth. I'm making them tomorrow! Another idea: bind four or five pieces of red licorice with flag ribbon to make it look like a firecracker. Cute & easy!

The fourth of July is my niece's birthday and I used to make watermelon sugar cookies for her celebration. Imagine my delight when she requested them last year on her 20th birthday as one of her favorite things from childhood.

Cheers!

Dip strawberries in white chocolate and then add blue sprinkles, or mixed patriotic sprinkles?
