Every year we host a huge cookout on July 4th. Ok, maybe huge is a bit of an exaggeration, but each year we normally have between 20-30 people at our house for some great food, even better company and maybe a sparkler or two. As the years have passed, families have grown and what used to be 4 or 5 kids at the cookout every year is now fifteen plus. The more the merrier and being the people pleaser that I am, I tend to go a little overboard with the food. Being the mom of a picky eater has really opened my eyes when it comes to feeding the kiddos, and the way I figure is if the kids are happy (and their tummies are full) – everyone is happy! Am I right?
The best part of any cookout is the desserts. Fact. Dessert is my favorite part of any meal and I make sure to make a few extra special things just for the kids. Every kid that I have ever met loves these Red White and Blue Sour Skewers – and guess what? They couldn’t be easier to make, which makes them a perfect kid-friendly dessert to serve at your July 4th cookout, too!
Here’s what you need:
- Blue Sour Patch Kids
- Regular Size Marshmallows
- Food Picks (we got ours from the dollar store)
