These 4th of July Fruit Skewers are perfect for a Summer party or 4th of July get together! The kiddos love them because they are fun to eat and they get a little healthy fruit in a yummy treat! You could always substitue the marshmallows for bananas and take out the light blue part of the flag and just purely use blueberries to make it extra healthy.  😉

These are fun for the kid’s to help make too!

Enjoy and be safe on the 4th!

4th Of July Fruit Skewers

Ingredients

  • {The amount of fruit varies depending on how big you want your flag but I will note the amount I used to make the flag in the picture}
  • 24 whole Strawberries with stems cut off (you could cut the in half too and only need 12 strawberries to save a little money
  • 20 Large Marshmallows
  • 16 Blueberries
  • 12 small marshmallows
  • Blue frosting (I use Duncan Hines frosting creations and cotton candy flavoring - the kids love this)

Instructions

  1. Wash fruit
  2. Cut stems off strawberries and leave whole (you can cut in half if you have less strawberries)
  3. Follow the pattern in the picture and first start with a strawberry (stabbing in the center so they don't fall off)
  4. Then stab a marshmallow followed by another strawberry and marshmallow
  5. Then stab a blueberry
  6. Next you will want to cover the small marshmallow in the blue frosting and stab it followed with a blueberry and keep repeating the pattern.
  7. You can put these on a serving plate or cutting board and place in fridge until ready to eat. This keeps the frosting from melting too much!
  8. Enjoy!
