Memorial Day & 4th Of July Treats | Summer Snack Ideas

Happy Memorial Day!

Instead of heading to the beach this weekend, I decided to make all my favorite summer treats that will be perfect for today and 4th of July! I am ready for the summer content so, let’s get baking & making cute summer treats!

American Flag Tray

This tray is the perfect if you are wanting to have a healthy/unhealthy treat for the summer! I put together an American Flag using strawberries, blueberries and the best – marshmallows!

Now that you have all your ingredients, cut the tops of the strawberries, and you can start assembling your flag!

This is super easy to recreate! I took a few skewers starting with a few blueberries and then adding strawberries half way through. Then the next skewer adding more blueberries and then adding the marshmallows! I created a flag pattern in just under 10 minutes! It’s super easy and fun if you are hosting any parties for the summer and for 4th of July!

Firecracker Mix

This is by far my favorite snack! It’s so easy to make and I know everyone in the house will be munching on this for days!

Here are the things you need: Blue and Red M&Ms (yes, I sorted them out), Pretzel Sticks , and Puppy Chow/”Reindeer Chow” – Here’s how to make it – click here to read! I typically make this for Christmas, but decided I wanted to make a small batch for Memorial Day!

Now that you have all your ingredients, it’s time to mix it all together! This is the fun part! I had a lot of fun styling these in cute red and blue striped cups for the holiday! This treat will sure have everyone wanting more!

Classic Smores

I LOVE a good smores snack! These are my go-to late night summer treat! These are perfect if you are having a campfire outside with the family or just wanting a simple treat. Keep these ingredients in your pantry all season long. Recently, all my target drive-up orders have consisted of chocolate and marshmallows!

Here’s what you’ll need: Graham Crackers, Marshmallows, Hershey’s Chocolate Bars and for a twist, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Now that you have all your ingredients, it’s super simple to make these! I do not have a campfire, so I will be using my stove – which is a PERFECT alternative to this classic treat.

Now that you toasted your marshmallows Assemble all the smores, y’all! I like to add a Reese’s because peanut butter and chocolate is the best combination!

Who doesn’t love smores?! These are fantastic and I crave at least one every day during the summer. These are a classic treat – these are sure to be a hit at your party!

That is all my favorite summer treats for Memorial Day and The 4th Of July! I cannot wait to recreate these summer treats throughout the season!
