4th Of July Fruit S'mores

Create a fun patriotic dessert using fruit snacks

   The challenge was to create a unique 4th of July dessert using fruit snacks. I received three boxes of delicious Welch's fruit snacks in red, white, and blue colors. My boys had a blast separating all the fruit snacks by colors. The Strawberry fruit snacks were a beautiful red color while the Fruit ‘n Yogurt ones were white. My boys discovered that the Berries N Cherries were both red and “blue” color. My boys and brained stormed of what we could create with the colorful fruit snacks. We thought of making a flag on gelatin but quickly realized that we did not have enough blue or white fruit snacks. Other ideas my boys and I came up with were ice cream sandwiches, popcorn, and cake. While looking in the pantry, I saw a box of graham crackers and frosting. Now, my boys love frosting on graham crackers, so adding fruit snacks would make a perfect fun 4th dessert.

Welch's fruit snacks are so delicious and fruit is the 1st ingredient. I love that they are low fat and gluten free. These delicious snacks have 100% vitamin C too! They even have vitamins and minerals in them. These are a family favorite snack.

 My boys noticed that the 'blue" fruit snacks are more purple color but it still great for our patriotic dessert. Maybe Welch's needs to make a blue color fruit snack.

  I love that these look like ice cream sandwiches but since they are made with frosting they are not going to melt. These were so simple to make. I placed the frosting between two graham crackers and then stuck the fruit snacks on the sides. I then sprinkled them with sprinkles. My boys said these tasted so good. You can make these ahead of time for your 4th party or place the ingredients on the table and let your guests have fun creating their fruit s'mores.

                        What patriotic dessert would you make with Welch's fruit snacks?


Here is another way to use the frosting, fruit snacks, and graham crackers. They make a delicious open face dessert.

"These opinions are my own and I received three boxes of fruit snacks to create this yummy dessert."
