So many foods come on a stick for our convenience. We have corn dogs, fudgsicles, popsicles, kebabs, suckers and more. The stick makes it easy to munch without the bother of a plate or fork and knife. This idea of ease can be passed to other foods as well with the use of Popsicle sticks. I believe this could make any Barbecue a great success. Not to mention, lesson the amount people touch the buffet style food. All the guest have to do is grab a stick and enjoy.
A refreshing treat that is easy to make and great to place on a stick is Watermelon. Thanks to orientaltrading.com, we have a wonderful easy to do tutorial on how to make “Watermelon Pops.” With only 3 items needed, they take very little time and the guests will love them.
1. Cut Watermelon into triangles like the picture. The Green outer edge should be the widest part and the pink juicy center should lead into a point.
2. Take a popsicle stick and slide it through the outer edge of the watermelon. You may have to create a small slice to get the hole started. But don’t make it too big or the popsicle stick will be too loose and fall out.
3. display the Watermelon Pops on a Serving Tray with sticks facing out so that they are easy to grab and enjoy
Now let the Party Begin!
