4th of July Dessert: Fruit Pops ~ Cuteness on a stick! Skip the fruit bowl and grab some cookie cutters and striped straws for a fun Fourth of July dessert.
Remember these vodka spike stuffed strawberries from last year? Fun, right? I wanted to keep the fruit theme going this year. This time I skipped the alcohol but you can certainly keep it by soaking the apple portion. I don’t recommend soaking the watermelon as it would become too mushy for this fruit-on-a-stick idea.
No recipe. Just a fun idea I wanted to share for a red, white and blue 4th of July dessert. Enjoy!
A few notes:
- To make these, I used watermelon, apples and blueberries.
- To keep the apples from browning, lightly brush them with lime or lemon juice. I prefer limes for the flavor and that they seem less tart.
- Cut watermelon and apple pieces to thickness of the cookie cutter, then place cookie cutter on top of slices and push straight down. Place one fruit inside of another and finish with a blueberry in the middle.
- Push the straw through all three pieces of fruit to keep it everything in place. If you have trouble pushing a paper straw through the apple portion, use a plastic straw first to create a pathway and then replace with the paper straw. Popsicle sticks will work as well.
