So, let's dive into this simple recipe that combines the sweetness of strawberries, marshmallows, and blackberries or blueberries.
- Fresh strawberries
- Blackberries or blueberries
- Skewer sticks
Step 1: Prepare the Fruit Start by washing the strawberries, blackberries or blueberries thoroughly under running water. Pat them dry using a clean kitchen towel or paper towels. Remove the stems from the strawberries and slice them into halves or quarters, depending on their size. Set aside.
Step 2: Assemble the Skewers Take a skewer stick and thread a strawberry piece onto it, pushing it down until it reaches the bottom. Follow it up with a marshmallow. Repeat this pattern until the skewer is filled, leaving some space at the top for easy handling. Continue making more skewers until you have used up all the ingredients. Use the blackberries or blueberries on half of the skewers to create an American flag visual
Step 3: Serve and Enjoy! Once your fruit skewers are ready, arrange them on a platter or plate. You can arrange them in a flag pattern or simply pile them up, depending on your preference. The vibrant colors of the fruits will already make them look appealing. You can also serve them with a side of whipped cream or a dip of your choice for an extra touch of flavor. Place the platter in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve.
