Then with little helping hands to assemble them they’re made lickity-split fast!  You’ll LOVE how easy and fun these 4th of July Watermelon Appetizers are to make AND they taste really amazing too!  If you’re a cheese-with-fruit kinda person like we are then  you’ll adore them plus for the picky eaters in the crowd, they can easily be taken apart to enjoy only the parts they like!
