Marshmallow Flags! / #15 Minute Friday

I am always excited for the 4th of July! It's one of my favorite holidays! I love what it stands for, and I love celebrating it with family and friends! 
Today's 15 Minute Friday is a quick and simple Marshmallow flag that would be fun to create with little ones. They also make cute decor for your festivities, and the perfect thank you gift for your guests!
Marshmallow Flags 
(printable recipe at end of page)

1 bag Bright White Candy Melts
Square Marshmallows
Red, White and Blue Straws
Assortment of red, white and blue sprinkles, jimmies, and shapes


Melt candy melts according to package directions. They melt great in the microwave, and are perfect every time.
Insert a straw into a marshmallow so it resembles a flag. Using a paintbrush that you only use for candy and cookie decorating, paint a small square in the corner, and attach the stars. Paint two stripes across the flag.
Sprinkle the holiday sprinkles across the flag. Let dry. Then turn over to remove the excess sprinkles.
Do the same thing for this flag, using one star and the hearts. Just go crazy with your imagination! There are so many ideas that are simple and quick!
Here are some different stripe ideas.
Some stars and a bunch of sprinkles.
Squares and hearts.
Thanks for joining me today for 15 Minute Friday! 

I hope you like these additional ideas to celebrate the red, white, and blue:

Chocolate Cherry Crescents / #15 Minute Friday

It is 15 Minute Friday, and today we have some Chocolate Cherry Crescents to share. Made with fresh cherries and semi sweet chocolate, these are sure to become a favorite treat!
 Chocolate Cherry Crescents
(makes 8 crescents)
(printable recipe at end of post)
1 package regular Crescent Rolls
1 cup fresh Cherries
1/4 cup semi sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Confectioners Sugar
1 tablespoon Milk


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

 Pit cherries and then chop the cherries in to quarters.
Unwrap the crescents and cut apart from each other. Add 1 tablespoon cherries across the bottom section of the crescent. Add a small amount of chocolate, like above, depending on your preference for chocolate.
Turn in both sides, and roll the crescent. All sides should be closed so nothing can leak out. Place crescents on baking sheet, bake according to package directions.
While crescents are baking, make glaze by adding milk to confectioners sugar. You can also use water instead of the milk.
Mix together until glaze is smooth.
Remove crescents from oven, let them cool. Drizzle with glaze.  
Let glaze set up. 
 



I tried to keep this to 15 minutes, but it may go over a little. You could use canned cherries and it would be quicker.  

Thank you for dropping by today! Enjoy!
