How To Make Fruit Kabobs

  1. Rinse and pat dry fruit and set aside to air dry. Slice strawberries in thick slices so they can be easily threaded on skewers.
  2. Working with one skewer at a time, thread a mint leaf, sliced strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries, leaving about 1/2 an inch at the bottom until all skewers have been made.Showing steps of slicing strawberries and threading the strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries on a skewer to make fruit kabobs
  3. Melt chocolate in the microwave at half power for 30 second increments, stirring between each. Continue until just melted.
  4. Dip the end of each skewer in the warm chocolate and arrange on a serving platter.
  5. Drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the skewers.
  6. Serve remaining chocolate as a dip (optional).

If you are wondering, do you need to soak the bamboo skewers first, the answer is no. But to ensure that all the splinters are removed from the skewers, rub two over the top of one another as if you were sharpening a knife.

What Is Fruit On A Stick Called?

Fruit on a stick is often referred to as an appetizer or hors d’oeuvres.

This fruit kabob recipe is super easy to make and can be made in any fruit combination you would like. Kids love these and think it is so fun to eat the fruit right off the stick.

Can Fruit Kabobs Be Made Ahead Of Time?

  • Make them the night before! – It is best to make these fresh, however depending on the kind of fruit you are using, you should be able to make them the night before your event. One thing to keep in mind, do not drizzle the chocolate until just before serving.
  • Wrap tightly! – Make sure to wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and place in an airtight container in your refrigerator until you are ready for the chocolate and to serve.
