I’ve always loved the Fourth of July…even when it’s in the middle of the week, it still means a little extra hang time. We used to enjoy every Fourth at the beach, but no matter where we are, brownies are always a part of dessert. A few years ago when I started to decorate my front door with a water-based Sharpie paint marker because of something I no doubt had seen on Pinterest…I thought why not replicate that design on a tray (or two) of brownies?

And basically anything with a tiny flag qualifies as a festive dessert on July 4th! Like these whoopie pies Madeline made last year.
So get out your scissors and cut out a stencil for your brownies. Are you following me on Pinterest? This board is all about USA!

I love this super simple idea of a bouquet of flags in a clear glass vase or jar that I saw on Design Mom last year.
