Fruit Sparklers…Fun, Healthy and Easy Patriotic Dessert

fruit sparklers, 4th of July dessert

Fruit Sparklers are a guaranteed crowd favorite for your 4th of July party!  When it comes to summer BBQ’s, I think it’s important to keep things simple. This patriotic desserts are a really fun, healthy and easy summer treat.


  • Ripe watermelon
  • Fresh blueberries
  • bamboo skewers
  • star cookie cutter


Slice the watermelon, vertically, into one inch rounds. Use the star cookie cutter to cut stars from the flesh of the watermelon.

Thread 7-10 blueberries into the center of each bamboo skewer, leaving enough space at the end for someone to be able to comfortably hold it, and a space at the top for the watermelon star.

Add the watermelon star. Store, covered, in the fridge until ready to serve.

Couldn’t be easier!
