Red, White and Blue Ice Cream & Brownie Parfaits

I am feeling patriotic so in the spirit of all things patriotic I am just going to pledge allegiance to our Red, White and Blue Ice Cream & Brownie Parfaits. Showing die-hard loyalty to such a delicious creation isn’t very hard to do, especially when it’s this good. Check your calendar ’cause summertime in the good ole U.S. of A means there is gonna be a fair share of celebrating and honoring our heroes (as it should be). And having served in the United States Air Force, I get it. I have innumerable reasons to be equally proud to have served. And doubly appreciative and thankful for all of the men and women soldiers who served before, and those who are actively serving. And my hat is off, and my head is bowed for those brave Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

So, if you know, a veteran thank a veteran and shower them with lots of respect and love. And who can forget our national birthday? This year we will mark 240 years of independence and democracy! And yes, THERE IS something pretty darn important behind all of those hot dogs, hamburgers, parades, and spectacular fireworks. So, in honor of all of our veterans (past, present and future) and with a nod to July 4th The Worthey’s are throwing our red, white and blue hat into the ring with a very star-spangled dessert!

And this isn’t just any old parfait either, nope not even close. We went big and baked up our favorite double chocolate and cherry brownie, added creamy scoops of cookie dough ice cream and fresh sweet strawberries and a cherry on top (literally there is a real cherry on top). But the real “cherry” on top is the special edition M&M’s® Red, White, Blue Milk Chocolate, M&M’s® Red, White, & Blue Peanut and Skittles® Red, White, & Blue layered ever so sweetly throughout this mouthwatering dessert.

You can grab all three and more at your local Walmart. And if you’re like me then you love to share, and right now Walmart is sharing too with their “1 For You, 1 For the Troops” and here’s a fun historical fact: Did you know M&M’s® were created for the troops? It is true so let’s keep the tradition going and buy M&M’s® at Walmart. I got everything I needed at my local Walmart, which is very convenient.
