A Red White, and Blue No Top-Eight Allergens Treat

July 4th is almost here, a day when many of our festivities are decorated in the red, white, and blue colors of our nation’s flag.

The white is said to stand for the ideals of purity and innocence. Red represents hardiness, and valor. The blue signifies justice, vigilance, and perseverance.

Here is an easy to make red, white, and blue sweet treat that can add some fun and flavor to your 4th of July celebration.
