Nothing says summer like toasting marshmallows over an open campfire.

Check out these easy to make, and patriotic marshmallow recipes for your Fourth fete!
Mix eight ounces of cream cheese, one package of completely thawed frozen whipped topping and one jar of marshmallow fluff until smooth. Spread the dip out across a deep square baking pan. Add blueberries, raspberries and mini marshmallows to create a red, white and blue look.
Pierce a marshmallow with a skewer. Dip the marshmallow into melted while chocolate. Before the chocolate hardens, add red and blue sprinkles to the top. Repeat to make a bouquet of patriotic pops.
Marshmallow Sundae Toppers
Set up a backyard sundae bar, adding patriotic marshmallows as colorful toppers. Lightly moisten mini marshmallows with water. Roll the marshmallows in red and blue crystal sugar. Sprinkle the marshmallows on top of vanilla ice cream, adding cherries, blueberries and other colorful sweet treats.
Repeat the sugar rolling steps above, but with larger marshmallows. Stack the marshmallows on a kabob skewer, adding sliced strawberries or blueberries in between.
