Easy Individual Fruit Pizzas, Great for 4th of July!


INGREDIENTS:
(24 servings)
Fruit of your choice (I used raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries)
8 oz of Cream Cheese (softened) (I used Light cream cheese)
7oz Marshmallow Cream
1 package of pre-cut sugar cookies 


DIRECTIONS:
1. Mix softened cream cheese and marshmallow cream together and put in fridge till ready to use.

2. Bake cookies for 12 minutes or as directed on package
(I like to keep them soft for a chewy fruit pizza)

3. Let cookies cool for about 10 minutes

4. Top the cookies with the cream cheese mixture

5. Top with fruit of your choice. 

6. Refrigerate until ready to serve!

I used raspberries and blackberries on some of the cookies making a star shape.  On other individual pizza cookies, I used strawberries and blackberries. I cut the raspberries in half when I was using it for the star so they would lay nicely. 

These are PERFECT for 4th of July!!

ENJOY!

Banana Pops

Concord Foods Banana Pops are so much fun to make, very tasty, and healthy. Making Banana Pops is a fun summer activity for kids and adults of all ages!

What You Need:

1. Bananas


Directions:
1. Freeze Bananas
2. Follow Directions on the back of the Package:
Heat chocolate packet up in hot water
While the chocolate is heating, put Popsicle sticks (included in your kit) in the bananas
Pour chocolate in a bowl or cup

My kids had a blast making their banana pops. This kit is great because the chocolate hardens fast. Both my kids got to make 4 each and eat one of them right away. They loved them so much they kept begging me for more. I definitely recommend this for a fun summer activity and a healthy snack!

Enjoy!
