I just love making up 4th of July treats to share with my family! I thought of this Patriotic Fruit Bouquet because my girls love fruit and it looks so festive! They loved it and so did the adults. It has apples, watermelon, blueberries, marachino cherries and marshmallows… all threaded onto wooder skewers and stripy straws. So fun!
I’ll start off by showing you how to make the star apples since this was the most involved:
Cut the apples width-wise about 1/4 inch thick. Take two different sized star cookie cutters and cut through the middle to make an open star shape.
Then soak the apples in either lemon juice or saltwater to keep them from browning. You only have to soak for about a minute then dry it off with a paper towel.
Insert a star marshmallow into the open space of the star.
The next fruit version we used blueberries, marachino cherries and star marshmallows all on a wooden skewer. So easy and creative!
It was a hit… and healthy too! This is a great way to get your kids to eat fruit if they don’t already.
What is YOUR favorite 4th of July treat?
