When it comes to Fourth of July desserts, we’re always looking for ways to try something different. And while we’ll never turn down a flag cake, we’re setting it aside this summer in exchange for a dish (that doubles as table decor) that’s a bit more...eye-catching. Enter the chocolate “fireworks” centerpiece—made with Dove Dark Chocolate Promises, fresh blueberries, strawberries and sweet mini marshmallows. 


12 strawberries

24 mini marshmallows

24 blueberries


1. Place a small foam ball in the base of a small vessel.

2. On six bamboo skewers, thread the fruit and chocolates in the following order: one Dove chocolate, two marshmallows, one strawberry, two blueberries, one Dove chocolate, two blueberries, one strawberry, two marshmallows and one Dove chocolate.

3. Skewer the assembled fruit and chocolate skewers into the foam.
