Easy Patriotic Snack Ideas For The Fourth Of July

The sun is out, pools are open, and the summer is almost officially here. As you plan your weekends by the beach, vacations over to the family, and afternoons hanging out in the backyard, Priester's Pecans is here to help you with some easy patriotic snack ideas for the 4th of July. Spice up your normal go-to holiday snacks with some delicious, mouth-watering appetizers, party snacks, and desserts from our long list of recipes!

Appetizers Perfect For The Fourth Of July

First and foremost, no party is complete with guacamole. Lucky for you, our Very Best Guacamole Dip is exactly as its name says -- the very best. With only nine ingredients and very simple easy-to-follow instructions, this guacamole is not only delicious but also super quick and easy to make.

While chips and dip are a staple, you always need to have a more filling appetizer to get you ready for the day's events. Bacon Jalapeno Cheese Balls are just what you need. Eleven ingredients, easy directions, and if you make too many -- they will last in the fridge for up to three days! Not to mention, these cheese balls are salty with a kick. Perfect as a midday snack or an appetizer, especially for the 4th of July.

Another appetizer we here at Priester's think would be a great addition to your holiday party is none other than Diane's Artichoke Bacon With Pecans. Now hear us out: you need to have an appetizer that features America's Southern delicacy! Pecans are a true American classic. This seven ingredient snack is an advanced version of spinach artichoke dip. It is served cold and will satisfy all of your guests. All you have to do is chop up and stir together your ingredients, grab a bag of chips, and voila.

Party Snacks For Poolside, The Beach, And More

Next on the must-prepare list for your Fourth of July party are party snacks. A quick grab and go before you hop back in the pool or sit back in your beach chair to soak up the sun. Here are a few of our favorites:

  1. What says Happy Fourth of July more than a cookie named after an American classic -- cowboys. The Cowboy Cookies are sweet, savory, and must bake for your party. While a little bit more time and energy goes into this snack than the aforementioned appetizers, you can make about 90-100 cookies and have the best spread of treats for everyone to share.
  2. Leonard's Pecan Wafers are another must. With only six ingredients, you can make 60 wafers. These snacks, similar to cookies, feature a classic nut, the pecan, with all of your favorite sweet ingredients to have a flavor that bursts in your mouth with each bite.
  3. Another snack that is simple and delicious is Candied Pecans. Made up of six basic ingredients, this recipe is perfect for laying by the pool, looking for a little snack while you dust off the sand from your feet, or as a little grab and go before a nice game of golf. Of course, if you want to just go with other classics, we have plenty of pecan options for you as well.

Desserts The Fourth Of July And All Summer Long

When it comes to desserts, there are so many ways you can go. Whether you are looking for something delectable, frozen, or anything in between, we have you covered! For a hot day in the sun, where all you want is nice ice cream to end the day, our Banana Split Ice Cream Topping is it. Just follow the directions and pop it in the freezer. In no time you have the most picture-perfect summer treat addition.

Another delicious frozen treat is our Chocolate Rum Frozen Pie. This classic chocolate pie with a little twist is not only a must-try, but a must add to all of your events. With only a handful of ingredients and super easy instructions, this two pie recipe is truly one of a kind in the best possible way. You're sure to make it again later in the summer.

Last but certainly not least is our White Chocolate Butter Pecan Fat Bombs Recipe which is perfect for anyone on a diet or health kick as this recipe is Keto! The eight ingredients are simple, and the directions are super easy to follow. Family and friends are sure to love that you included a healthier option.
