Patriotic Brownie Skewers

Patriotic Brownie Skewers

These are some of the easiest 4th of July treats I’ve ever made, and they’re so fun! Sometimes the simple ideas are the best, don’t you think?  I saw a picture of something similar on Simple Organized Living, and just had to replicate her idea. Ingredients include fresh baked brownies (I used a ghirardelli box mix), strawberries, blueberries, mini marshmallows and wooden skewers. I cut the brownies into stars to fit with my patriotic theme, but you could just do squares, or use a mini biscuit cutter to make cute little circles. Then assemble the various ingredients on your skewer in whatever order you want. (Tip: Don’t choose the brownies with chocolate chips in them. Learn from my experience.)

These would also be delicious drizzled with melted white chocolate to finish them off, but I ended up leaving mine plain and simple. It made me feel healthier. If you’re looking for a fun and simple “red white and blue” dessert for the 4th of July, give these a try – they’re sure to be a big hit. :)
