Patriotic Fruit Skewers {Holiday Recipe Club: 4th of July}

Happy 4th of July, everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying a day off of work, your independence, spending time with family and friends, playing {safely} with fireworks, and good food, of course!

Let me help you out a little with that one...

Here's a nice little patriotic snack or treat for the kids, or heck, for yourself. 

















It's super simple. Adorable. And tasty! 

I hadn't realized that marshmallows and strawberries go together well.

Patriotic Fruit Skewers
  • 1 pint strawberries, rinsed and dried
  • Star shaped mini marshmallows
  • 1 pint blueberries, rinsed and dried
  • Wooden skewers
Thread strawberries, marshmallows and blueberries onto the wooden skewers in whatever red, white and blue pattern you like.


I am joining in over at this month's Holiday Recipe Club for the 4th of July - the ingredients were blueberries, barbeque sauce, and whipped cream. {As you can see, I chose blueberries.}


Peace, and bacon grease!

What a darling idea! I made patriotic fruit kebobs and added star-shaped pieces of patriotic angel food cake. Any way you look at it - these are very inviting and a healthy snack too. Thanks for linking up at Weekend Potluck.

Very cute! I can't believe I haven't seen these star marshallows--I'm so oblivious! Wish I could have joined this holiday posting since it's the last one for a while, but I'm having fun visiting everyone elses. :)

What a great idea! I'm glad some people are still posting patriotic recipes. They can be used for parties all through the summer right up to Labor Day.
I did mine on "Navy Star Cookies" at Ann's Food on Fridays. Patriotic also.
Blessings,
Janis
