4th of July Edible Centerpieces

 

 

The 4th of July is this weekend and for us the holiday usually involves the local parade, a family BBQ and fireworks to round out the night. I’m sure this is also how a lot of other people spend the day as well. It’s a great holiday for friends, family and fun. For the tables this year I decided to make 4th of July edible centerpieces since our family is over run with kids currently. Something that the kids or kids at heart could just grab and nosh on when they felt like it.

These edible centerpieces consist of star marshmallows in two sizes, Rice Krispie Treats cut out with a star cookie cutter, candies and sprinkles for the edible portion.

This is also a great thing to make and let the kids put them together and decorate. Not only does it lessen your work but it also keeps the kids out-of-the-way so you can get everything else done.

For the stands to hold the edible treats you can use any red, white or blue containers that you think will work. I personally used a red, square, bamboo cup and a blue, oval, tin bucket.
