Festive Flag

Festive Flag

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!
