Ingredients Needed

  • 1/2 whole unseeded watermelon, cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 8-12 medium wooden skewers
  • 1 star cookie cutter

Preparation Steps

Cutting and Shaping

Slice the watermelon into 1/2 inch slices and use a star cookie cutter to cut out star shapes. Don’t cut too thin; your stars need to be sturdy enough to stay intact on the skewer.

Skewering

With the pointy side up, start alternating blueberries and mini marshmallows on the skewer.

Depending on the size of your skewer, use 3 to 6 of each, leaving about an inch at the end to add the star and an inch at the other end to hold the skewer.

Finally, add a watermelon star to the end. Half a watermelon should yield at least 12 star skewers.
