Fruit Kabob Essentials!
- 10 wooden skewers
- mint (optional)
- melting chocolate
How To Make Fruit Kabobs
- Rinse and pat dry fruit and set aside to air dry. Slice strawberries in thick slices so they can be easily threaded on skewers.
- 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.
- Melt chocolate in the microwave at half power for 30 second increments, stirring between each. Continue until just melted.
- Dip the end of each skewer in the warm chocolate and arrange on a serving platter.
- Drizzle melted chocolate over the top of the skewers.
- 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.
