4th of July Party Idea’s – Skittles® Inspired Treats

To many, the 4th of July is more than a day of fireworks and parades, it’s about celebrating this awesome country that we love and have fought so hard for. I truly appreciate all of the men and women who have fought for our country and have kept us safe.

For most of us hosting a 4th of July party can be tough, catering to parents and kids picky eating habits can be a tall order. Providing the usual hotdog’s and burgers are always a staple at any BBQ. I came up with some fun idea’s for your family to enjoy this year using the Special Edition Skittles® America Mix.

Star Dogs in a Blanket

Use crescent rolls and lay them in the triangle shape, cut hot dogs in half, and then cut the ends so they are straight and pointed. Lay one hot dog on top of the other and then wrap around the hot dogs until you form a point at the top between the hot dogs.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes, watch until golden brown. Let sit for at least 4-5 minutes and then serve with your favorite sauces.
