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. 🙂
