Why Fruit Kabobs are so great
- Use any fruit – these ones are all dressed up for Memorial Day and 4th of July, but you can use any type of fruit you want!
- So easy to scale the amount – make as few or as many as you want to suit your size crowd.
- Make them long or mini – use lollipop sticks or standard wooden skewers, depending on how short or tall you want them.
- No oven needed – if you don’t want to make Angel Food Cake, you can simply buy one and then you don’t need to bake anything!
- Make them ahead – you can make these ahead of time and stick them in the fridge until ready to serve.
- Anyone can make them – no special skills or equipment needed to make these!
- Swap out the blueberries and strawberries for some of your other favorite fruits. I would not recommend raspberries or blackberries, however, since they aren’t sturdy.
- Instead of Angel Food Cake, try pound cake or pieces of fudge brownies.
- Drizzle with milk chocolate instead of white chocolate.
- Ditch the chocolate and serve them with sweet yogurt for dipping.
- I used vanilla candy melts instead of white chocolate chips, because candy melts dry and set faster. They also won’t melt if the kabobs are set out on the counter.
- These can be made up to 1 day in advance of needing to serve them. Keep them in a single layer, covered with plastic wrap, and store in the fridge. If you need to stack them to save on space, that’s fine, but make sure the chocolate is completely set first.
Serve anything on a toothpick or skewer, and you’re bound to have happy kids and guests. Food that’s mini or on a stick is just fun to eat, no matter what age you are!
