Red, White & Blue Mini Trifles

June 12, 2017

School is finally out here in Petoskey and we are super excited! Wednesday June, 14th is National Flag Day and July 4th is less than a month away so the summer season is in full swing. We even best both days at the beach this past weekend! Ask anyone around and you’re sure to find that summer’s in Northern Michigan are the best. Yes, our summer season is short but we absolutely love it and try to soak up as much of it as we can! With Flag Day being this Wednesday and July 4th already a few weeks away, summer get togethers are a given. Whether it’s a potluck, barbecues or a summer camping trip, red, white and blue treats are perfect for this time of year!

What better way to celebrate with friends and show your patriotism than with a delicious red, white and blue trifle recipe. With being outside as much as possible this time of year I love easy and delicious treats that everyone loves and don’t take a ton of time to make.

Last year, I wrote a blog post on Flag Day Etiquette, this year I’m sharing an easy recipe that everyone will love and it’s simple to throw together a head of time and have ready for your guests.
