Stars and Stripes Snack - Happy Fourth of July!


Stars and Stripes Snack Details:

**Star in the middle is a star cookie cutter with blueberries inside and star strawberry on top (you should be able to find star cookie cutters in different sizes at your local craft/kitchen store or find some online - see links below for an idea of what is out there).
** Muffin cup #1 (12 o'clock) - cottage cheese
**Muffin cups #2 and 4 (3 o'clock and 9 o'clock) - strawberry pieces
**Muffin cup #3 (6 o'clock) - slices of string cheese (the stripes of the snack)
**Garnishes:  star strawberries and string cheese circles with blue stars drawn on top with a food marker.

By the way:  I could not find a direct link to the blue muffin cups that I have, but the link for the red below should take you to a place where you can switch colors if you wanted the blue.  :)
