    I saw the “Captain America” cookies, and was super excited to check out that recipe! But I can’t seem to find it. Not only are those cookies great for the upcoming holiday season, but they’re great for any comic/Marvel movie fan. I am really curious to see how to make those rings of red without making the whole cookie red. I will definitely look into these so I can impress my mother for our family holiday get-together. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think these 4th of July dessert recipes are adorable! I love the flag-themed, multi-colored cake. Also, I’m a big Captain America fan and so is my best friend so I know if she saw these at a party she’d light up and immediately ask for the recipe. With the latest Captain America movie coming out I think these cookies would be a great way to celebrate the new movie. The blueberries and strawberries combination is also a cute and easy combination that I wouldn’t have thought of.

    Love the no-bake cake truffles! They look delicious and super festive. Always looking for easy no-bake recipes.
