How many of you have an insatiable sweet tooth? I know I do and these Chocolate Fruit Kabobs do just the trick! Whether it is a late night when I am craving just a little something extra while I watch my Monday night TV shows or at a fun summer pool party and someone volunteered me to bring the dessert, these will hit the spot.
Kiwi is one of my all time favorite fruits. Not only is the color gorgeous, but so is the flavor. The sweetness in a kiwi gets my taste buds going! Beside the flavor benefits of kiwi, they are also a phenomenal source of vitamin C. They are also a great source of potassium and vitamin E!
This delicious treat is healthy and super easy to prep. Kick this one off by boiling 3-4 cups of water in a saucepan. Place a bowl over the top of the sauce pan with the chocolate in the bowl. Stir the chocolate until it begins to melt. Prep the fruit by cutting off the tops of the strawberries and peeling and slicing the kiwi. Assemble your kabobs by alternating between strawberry and kiwi on the stick. Drizzle the melted chocolate over your kabobs and top with chopped nuts of your choosing. We used pecans this time, but other great nuts could be almonds or walnuts! All with many health benefits and a great source of healthy fats.
This one is great for yourself when you’re feeling a little sweet or for sharing with friends, family, kids, whoever! Fruit kabobs are so easy, healthy, and delicious that they are a great staple for your kitchen. Feel free to switch up the fruit! Try pineapple, apples, or any other berries!
