Candy…kids love it…adults love it…candy puts a smile on everyone’s face! So what better treat to serve at your Fourth of July Celebration, take to the Parade or maybe even pack a picnic for beach…Patriotic Candy Skewers! But these are not your ordinary candy skewers, these are kicked up a little for Fourth of July with fun toppers on them.
The kiddos will have a blast helping you create them too! The candy possibilities are endless, but here is what I used…
Patriotic Candy Skewers Supplies
- Red and Blue Gummies – rings, raspberries and flowers
- Xtreme Air Heads – blue raspberry
- Star shaped marshmallows
- Wooden skewers
- Wired flag garland
- Pinwheels – I used scrapbook paper and cut them 2 1/2 and 3 inches square, and used my instructions on how to make a pinwheel
Are you hungry yet?
Oh after the Candy Skewers are all done, you will need to serve them. I used a trifle dish wrapped with ribbon and filled with floral foam. On top of the foam, I added a couple layers of plastic wrap and then poured in red and blue M&M’s.
