A Fourth of July Treat

Happy almost 4th of July! I love treats. All kinds, really. I love to make them even more than I like to eat them, so I decided for this post to share a quick dessert idea with you.  It feels like it is a million degrees outside, so I wanted something light and refreshing.  This is what I came up with! Start with angel food cake.  I usually make mine from a box, but if you are feeling extra ambitious, go for scratch. Or just buy one!  While cake is baking, whisk together instant vanilla pudding with 1 1/2 cup cold milk.  Refrigerate to let it set. When the cake is cool, cut it into small cubes and layer in the bottom of a dish.  Add blueberries and strawberries on top of cake.  I like my blueberries a little sweeter, so I sprinkled them with sugar before layering them in the dish.  Combine equal parts cool whip with pudding until smooth.  Spoon on top and garnish with a berry!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday and don’t burn anyone with your sparklers!

Don’t mind us, just sitting in the park, eating our treats haha
