- Fresh strawberries
- Fresh blackberries
- Large marshmallows
- Wooden skewers
🍓Step 1: Prep the Fruits 🍓
Start by washing the strawberries and blackberries under cold water. Pat them dry gently with a paper towel. Remove the stems from the strawberries and set them aside.
🍡Step 2: Assemble the Skewers 🍡
Take a wooden skewer and carefully slide on one blackberry. Follow it up with a large marshmallow and then a strawberry, making sure the pointed end of the strawberry is facing upward. Repeat this pattern until the skewer is full, leaving enough space at the end to resemble the flagpole.
🏳️Step 3: Create the Flag Pattern 🏳️
On the skewer, arrange the fruits to resemble the American flag. Position the strawberries in a row at the top to represent the red stripes. Depending on the size of the skewer, you can add three or four strawberries in a row. Leave a small gap between each strawberry to imitate the flag's white stripes.
👧Step 4: Add the Blackberries 👧
Beneath the row of strawberries, place a cluster of blackberries to represent the blue field with stars. Stack the blackberries closely together, covering the remaining space on the skewer.
✨Step 5: Final Touches ✨
Once you have finished assembling the skewers, you can gently press down on the fruits to ensure they are securely in place. If needed, trim any excess skewer length at the bottom to create a flagpole effect.
🍴Step 6: Serve and Enjoy! 🍴
Display your American Flag Fruit Skewers on a platter or stand, and proudly present them at your patriotic gathering. They make a delightful and refreshing treat for everyone to enjoy. The burst of flavors from the juicy strawberries, tart blackberries, and sweet marshmallows will be loved by kids and adults alike.
