You Will Need:

Fireworks Cheese Stick Snack Directions:

  1. Cut your strawberries into round slices and make this the bottom of your firework.
  2. Cut your cheese sticks into thirds (chunks not sticks), and then going almost the whole way down, cut/peel each chunk so the strips cascade down. (You will likely need to make some of your peels rather thin so they bend.) Stack the non peeled side on the strawberry slice.
  3. Stack a blueberry on top of the cheese and push it down slightly to help the cheese spread out.
  4. Stick a toothpick through the stack to hold everything together.
