How to Make Graham Cracker Flag
- Get your base.
Take 2 whole graham cracker sheets and spread softened cream cheese on one and nut butter on another.
- Decorate the cream cheese.
On the cream cheese, add 4 blueberries to the top left corner before creating red ‘stripes’ with halved raspberries.
- Try one with strawberries!
On the peanut butter cracker, add blueberries the same way before laying down sliced strawberries down. Finish by making white stripes with whipped cream.
Red, White, and Blue Fruits
The easiest way to add some red white and blue to your 4th of July snacks is to add some colorful fruit! Need some inspiration? Here are my favorites.
