*I was provided with a review and giveaway package.

The Fourth of July is just about a week away! June seems to have flown by so quickly that I just realized the holiday is almost here. Every year our two favorite ways to celebrate the holiday is watching (and lighting) fireworks and creating fun red, white and blue themed recipes. On the 4th, the kids get an entire day full of colorful meals starting with breakfast. In the past I’ve we’ve made a Patriotic Checkerboard Cake, a Red White & Blue Glazed Pound Cake, Star Spangled Mini Pancake Stacks and my personal favorite, Red White & Blueberry Cheesecake Mason Jars.

4th of July Desserts

This year we’re continuing the tradition with a little help from Hungry Jack. They’ve got a special Stars & Stripes Funfetti Pancake mix that is so easy and fun for 4th of July recipes. I had a lot of ideas for ways to use this mix given the fact that my kids are pancake fanatics we stuck with a pancake recipe. I made it extra special with a cheesecake filling between the layers and a sweet cherry pie topping.

Cherry Cheesecake Stars and Stripes Pancakes

When you cut into the rich layers of pancake you get a red, white and blue surprise! Each pancake is packed with edible funfetti pieces that give these a festive colors.
