Snack Time Fruit on a Stick /#15 Minute Friday

Sometimes it only takes a few extra minutes to make something look special, and in return make it enticing and irresistible! That was my goal today for this #15 Minute Friday post. How to make simple grapes and bananas look special enough that children will pick the fruit over a cookie or candy. I think this Snack Time Fruit on a Stick just might work!
Snack Time Fruit on a Stick
(printable recipe at end of post)

Red Grapes
Green Grapes
Bananas
Palm Tree Drink Stirrers
Strawberry Yogurt
1 Dollop of Whipped Cream 

This is all you need for each skewer. Decide what design you want to use to thread on the fruit. make them all the same, or change it around. I cut the bananas a bit wide. If they are too thin, they will fall off the skewer. 
I think the skewers add a fun element to this very simple snack.
Mix the whipped cream and the yogurt. The fruit tastes great dipped in this.
That's all there is to it. The stirrers can be found at the dollar store. They come 10 to a package.

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!

Red, White and Blue Marshmallow Lollipops / #15 Minute Friday


Today I have some quick and easy Red, White, and Blue Marshmallow Lollipops to share with you! There is absolutely nothing difficult about these fun holiday lollipops, and everyone will love how cute and festive they are!
 Red, White and Blue Marshmallow Lollipops
(scroll down for printable recipe)
(makes 6)

6 large Marshmallows
1 Cocktail pick for each lollipop
Red Frosting Tube
Blue Frosting Tube
2 Decorating Tips (Wilton #3)
Patriotic Nonpareils or sprinkles
Candy Stars

Here are the marshmallow squares and a pick for each one.
 Attach the decorating tips to each tube of icing.
Use  a rolling pin to flatten the marshmallow. You will have to roll several times on each side. Place the star on the marshmallow to make sure it fits. If not, roll again. Place the rolling pin on the cookie cutter and roll back and forth. Doing this will help you cut the marshmallow with a clean cut.

Pour the sprinkle into a small bowl. Dip the cut edges of the marshmallow into the sprinkles. The cut edges are sticky and the sprinkles will adhere nicely. Add a cocktail pick to each star.
 
Start adding 1 color of frosting squiggles to each star. Then add the second color.
Add the nonpareils or sprinkles, and some stars. Place on a tray and cover with plastic until ready to serve!

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
