Foodie Friday -- Fourth of July Sweets

SeaWorld Orlando's Fourth of July Sweets

Potato salad, barbeque, coleslaw and watermelon are some tried-and-true Fourth of July staples. But, what about all the tasty desserts? SeaWorld Orlando's very own Chef Colon created these easy-to-make sweets just for the holiday weekend. These recipes call for less work and more red, white and blue fun!

To make the watermelon sugar cookies, just add green and pink frosting to store-bought or homemade sugar cookies. For the seeds, add black jelly beans. If you're looking for a crispy treat, the iced rice crispies are perfect -- just add vanilla icing and some red, white and blue jelly beans (add some patriotic sprinkles for more flare). These quick snack ideas will impress everyone (and their taste buds!) at your Fourth of July picnic or barbeque.

Also, this weekend -- July 2, 3 and 4 -- remember to check out Summer Nights at SeaWorld, where the party comes alive each night with a rock-n-roll atmosphere throughout the park and amazing, summer-only shows like Shamu Rocks and Sea Lions Tonite! A you-can't-miss fireworks finale will light up the sky Saturday, Sunday and Monday night. Plus, on July 4th, additional fireworks timed to patriotic music will add to the Independence Day celebration.

So join us all weekend long for a red, white and blue spectacular that's going to be a blast, literally!
