Macaroni Kid Creates Red, White and Blue Snacks for The Family

No Bake Red, White and Blue S'Mores and July 4th Red, White and Blue Bark

By Sharon Rosenthal June 26, 2020

This week I got creative with the kids and we made some July 4th treats to share on July 4th and as gifts to drop off at our friends. 

We used all these toppings for both recipes so I am putting them together. We made July 4th S'mores that don't require cooking or grilling and July 4th Candy Bark to give as gifts to friends. 

Here is what we made:


What You Will Need:


  • Cupcake Pan
  • Plastic Spoons and Knives for decorating
  • Two small sealable sandwich bags
  • Colored Sugar in Red, White and Blue (you can buy or make your own- see below for how to make your own)
  • Mini Marshmallows - We love Dandies, we get them at Sprouts
  • Blue. Red and any white candies or chocolate chips you can find in those colors
  • Cranraisins
  • White Marshmellow Fluff
  • Red and Blue Food Coloring
Here is what the toppings tray looks like:

To Make this cupcake topping tray:

Put all the types of candy or chocolate chips and cran raisins in a cupcake spot, one for each type

SUGAR: You will want three spots for sugar. Spoon out a quarter cup plain sugar into one spot on the tray. Then take two plastic bags and fill with a quarter cup of sugar each, put a drop of blue food coloring in one bag and shake, put a drop of red food coloring in with the other sugar bag and shake. When both are well-mixed pour into their spot on the cupcake tray.

FLUFF: You will want three spots for the different colors of fluff. Spoon out the fluff for white in the tray, then spoon out white in the next two spots on the tray. Add a drop of blue food coloring to one and a drop of red food coloring to the other white fluff. Mix the blue and red to turn your fluff into your color.
