Fourth of July is just around the corner and as temperatures start to soar the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven. Instead, this is the best time of year to really get creative with your sweet treats and create simple and fun no-bake desserts. To celebrate summer and summer entertaining I’ve got a treat that is perfectly patriotic for this coming holiday weekend. It is also a great activity with your kids; you can create a skewer bar with all of the fruit and muffin toppings for the kids to assemble themselves. And it is a great back to school lunch box snack.
I’m going red, white and blueberry with these Otis Spunkmeyer mini muffin fruit kabobs. You can use any fruit that you like, it doesn’t have to be this strawberry blueberry banana combo that I have here. But if you are looking for patriotic, this is a festive American flag combo. For these party skewers I used Otis Spunkmeyer mini blueberry muffins with a honey yogurt dipping sauce. This also works great with the Otis Spunkmeyer mini chocolate chip muffins. You can pair those with banana and strawberry, or apples and throw in a peanut butter dipping sauce.
Who doesn’t love food on a stick! It doesn’t get any cuter than these Pinterest-worthy mini muffin kabobs. Try them out for your next get-together. The fruit and muffin combinations are endless and they are a better-for-you-treat!
Otis Spunkemyer recently launched a brand new line of sweet snack foods at grocery stores across the country that have better-for-you-ingredients and taste more homemade – exactly what consumers have been asking for! To celebrate this milestone for the brand, which has been around since the 1970’s, they are creating a one-day pop-up on the Santa Monica Pier. The pop-up won’t be a traditional storefront, but rather a giant inflatable obstacle course that ends in an Otis Spunkmeyer ball-pit! And lots of free food samples will be available to anyone who wants to come by! The pop-up event will be one day only: Saturday, July 2 from 10am-5pm.
