Red White and Blue Fruit Sparklers | Easy Patriotic Appetizer Recipe

Hey yall! 
 
Do you have a super simple recipe your family loves that take little to no time to make?
 
The kind of recipe that, because it’s so easy – you hardly even think of it as a recipe? 
 
That recipe for me is red, white and blue fruit skewers!
 
They are SO easy to make, and not sure they count as a real “recipe”.  But they are so fun and festive I wanted to share! They are the perfect simple appetizer to munch on during the summer months. 
 
I love any recipe that doesn’t take a whole lot of time, that my kids LOVE, and I don’t have to turn on the oven! What I call a triple win!
 
We have a farmers market in our town that opens up on Saturdays starting in May and I love to whip up simple recipes using fresh fruits we buy from the market. They taste so fresh and yummy!
 
With so many red white and blue fruits to choose from, fruit kabobs (or fruit skewers) are a easy appetizer to make for Memorial Day weekend, 4th of July, or to enjoy all summer long!

How to Make Red White and Blue Fruit Kabobs?

 
Fruit kabobs are super simple to make! My kids loved helping me make these with their favorite fruits. Follow these easy steps below:
 

Cut the watermelon in slices, with enough width to fill up your star cookie cutter.

Use star cookie cutter to make star shaped watermelon pieces. I use the smallest star on this cookie cutter set.

Rinse the strawberries and blueberries. Cut strawberries in halves or fourths.

For the foil firework picks: I start spearing the fruit, alternating between watermelon, blueberries and strawberries. Make sure you pierce the fruit in the middle so it stays on the pick. My kids love helping out with the step and making their own fruit patterns!

For the paper straws: Pierce the paper straw through the middle of the star shaped watermelon. Add a blueberry in the center of the star watermelon. To get the blueberry to stay on the watermelon star, I use a toothpick to dig out a small circle for the blueberry to press into.

Place your finished fruit skewers and fruit sparklers in a festive dish or upright vessel.

Store in refrigerator until ready to eat! Enjoy!
