Fruit Sparklers

These fruit sparklers are sure to be the star of your 4th of July festivities. They’re easy to make, and even easier to enjoy!


1 whole watermelon

16 oz fresh blueberries



Slice watermelon into 1 inch thick, vertical slices. Then use a small star shaped cookie cutter to make your shapes. This is possible to achieve from making a star out of a knife, which we wish you luck on this endeavor!

Add about 10 blueberries onto your skewers, and leave a bit of room at the bottom for room to hold.

Add your watermelon star to the top of the skewer and your fruit sparklers are ready to go. Cover and refrigerate for a later snack. Enjoy!
