Watermelon Blueberry Sparklers
Tips for Making These Watermelon Blueberry Skewers
- Choosing the best watermelon: make sure to get a melon that is heavy for its size, has a yellow-ish circle on it (meaning it ripened in the field), and makes a hollow sound when thumped (under-ripe melons sound duller).
- Make sure to use a very stable cutting board while you cut your watermelon into ‘plates’. If your cutting board is slipping around, put a dishcloth under it.
- While I usually use a full-size watermelon for this recipe (they’re cheaper!), if you are making this recipe with kids, it might be fun to get them each their own small melon.
- This recipe works best with seedless watermelons.
- It’s easy to add other fruit to these skewers as well! Pineapple and melon both make great stars too.
Pour the white candy melts into the jelly roll pan and then drizzle the colored candy melts over the top. Here’s a picture of how I drizzled it for this pattern.
Then I used a small wooden skewer (the non-pointy end) to swirl in a figure 8 pattern.
Now just top it with your toppings (crushed oreo cookies, m&m’s, star sprinkles, and red white and blue jimmies) and refrigerate until it’s hard enough to break. That’s it!!
