We love making kabobs so when we saw this we just had to try it. We have dipped fruit before but never thought about displaying it this way. So elegant looking, everyone loved it too at the social . Thanks for sharing with us, and have a good day,

Hit of any party!

I have made this recipe for Summer BBQ's, Garden Parties, Wedding Showers..... It is SO simple, yet so elegant! I always get OHHHS & AHHHs when I come walking into a party with a platter of them. I have also made them using white chocolate covered Angle food cake. Lately I do both!(what a presentation they make!) After the chocolate is set,I then drizzle the cake with the opposite flavored chocolate! I use strawberrys, fresh pineapple & cantelope. DELISH!

This can be as simple as you want by using canned fruit or fresh. I followed the picture and added bananas for a dinner party. yum.

This was simple to make using purchased pound cake. It works well with a variety of fruits.

Great for little kids

What a great idea for little kids as they like to try new things, and it is a good way for them to help and they usually will eat something that they can help make.
