Hey yall!!!  It’s that time of the week again!  The one where we bring you some amazing 4th of July Recipes!  Yum!!

This is our last week of the 4th of July Series and next month we will be bringing you our Frozen Dessert Series, just in time to cool you off during all this hot weather.

On to this weeks recipe, I have been bringing you guys some awesome 4th of July Desserts and I decided to lighten it up a little this week.  Sometimes it is just hot and you want a cool treat, something refreshing and fruity and I can’t think of anything more refreshing than these chocolate covered fruit sticks.

Bananas, apple slices and kiwi and are popped on patriotic paper straws, dipped in white chocolate, sprinkled with red, white and blue sprinkles then frozen for a chilly treat perfect for snacking while watching the fireworks this 4th.

This recipe is super simple, just slice up your favorite fresh fruit, pop em on a stick, freeze em, dip, decorate them and freeze till ready to serve.

Fruit

This is a great recipe the kids can help with (not the slicing the fruit part) but putting them on the straws, decorating them and even dipping them can all be some kitchen fun for your little ones to help with.

Kiwi bananas apples

There is nothing better than a piece of frozen fruit dipped in chocolate and everyone will be grabbing these off the table as they walk by and they will be gone in a flash so make plenty!!
