It doesn’t have to be Memorial Day, Fourth of July, or Labor Day, to enjoy this awesome snack. Last year, I came across this idea from Pinterest. I saw this cute picture of a flag snack using skewers. I had a ton at home so I decided to try out the recipe, but I changed it up a bit. The recipe that I found on Pinterest used bananas for the white part. I swapped the bananas for marshmallows because I worried the bananas would brown and I figured it would add a little more excitement! It was a HUGE hit at the house!
This year the kids demanded that I let them make it all by themselves. I was a little reluctant, but I gave the go ahead. My oldest, Melanie, was the head chef, Jack and Nick were the assistants (plus my hubby was in the living room listening/monitoring). I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the finished product!
What you will need…
12 Total Skewers, blueberries, strawberries, and marshmallows
6 Skewers with 10-12 blueberries, 3 strawberries and 2 marshmallows on each one
6 Skewers with 5 strawberries and 4 marshmallows on each one
- Use the picture to follow pattern
Lay on a flat cookie sheet or nice platter
The kids love this snack and it’s a great side dish for a party! Your guests will be impressed!
