10 creative uses for Coffe Filters

Looking for a fun treat to bring to a Memorial Day or  4th of July cookout?  These 4th of July Fruit “Sparklers” are easy, cheap and yummy!   Once you’ve eaten/used up most of your watermelon – use the bottom of the melon for a sparkler holder.  Just shove it in a bowl/bucket of ice to keep it cold and sitting upright!

Recipe: 4th of July Fruit Sparklers
dessert, party, appetizer
 
You can substitute other red fruits in place of the watermelon - Strawberries, Raspberries, even Cherries!
Ingredients
  • Watermelon
  • Blueberries
  • Marshmallows
  • Bamboo Skewers
Instructions
  1. Cut your watermelon into chunks, balls or triangles. If you don't have mini-marshmallows, just use scissors to cut the large ones into 4 even pieces. Slide the fruits and marshmallows onto the skewers creating a red, white and blue pattern.
  2. You can either set your fruit sparklers on a platter - or present them by sticking the skewers in the leftover half of your watermelon!
