Refreshingly sweet and patriotic, Watermelon Fruit Skewers are the perfect summer treat for Fourth of July parties.


  • Fresh Watermelon
  • Blueberries
  • Wooden Skewers


  1. Start by preparing the watermelon. Slice the watermelon into thick, rectangular pieces, about 1 inch thick. Then, cut these slices into your star shape using a star cookie cutter.
  2. Take a wooden skewer and carefully insert it into the bottom of each star Watermelon slice, making sure it goes through the center. Leave a few inches of the skewer exposed to resemble the handle of a sparkler. Repeat the process to create your own pattern.
  3. Slide a few blueberries onto the exposed part of the skewer, just above the watermelon slice. The blueberries will represent the “spark” of your sparkler.
  4. Arrange your Watermelon Fruit Sparklers on a serving platter. For an added touch, you can decorate the platter with fresh mint leaves to enhance the festive look.
  5. Place the platter in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes before serving. The coolness of the watermelon will be incredibly refreshing on a warm summer day.
