These Chocolate Drizzled Fruit Kabobs are the perfect portable, tasty, grab-and-go style dessert that are great for picnics or gatherings! They are easy to make and will put a smile on everyone’s face as they grab for more!
National Picnic Day is in April, right as the weather starts to turn more springlike! If you’re anything like our family, you are itching to get outside, go explore and enjoy a picnic lunch. My husband is a sucker for picnic lunches – in fact, he bought us an old school wicker picnic basket years ago before kids so we could enjoy picnics together, he’s such a romantic!
As I was preparing recipes for my upcoming live cooking segment for WBTV in Charlotte, NC, I decided to have a picnic for one! The weather is absolutely perfect here in North Carolina right now that I just wanted to enjoy some peace and quiet outside under the shade of our towering hardwood trees that line our yard, while the kids were at school #momheaven —>am I right? or am I right? lol.
I’ve been eating paleo lately (aka 1 week) so I have a lot of fresh fruit around. I decided to make fruit kabobs and cheat a little by drizzling them with chocolate…because chocolate makes everything taste better, so why not drizzle it all over your fruit! (hey, we all need cheat days once in a while!) If you like peanuts, then this version of the Banana Split Kabob Stick is for you!
Lets Make them Together!
I started by cutting up my fruit – strawberries, bananas and pineapples.
Once the fruit was diced, I slide them onto the wooden bamboo skewers.
I placed the kabobs on a metal cooking sheet lined with a piece of parchment paper. I placed them in the freezer for 10 minutes and got busy making my chocolate drizzle.
In a microwave safe bowl I heated my chocolate melting wafers in 30 second increments, stirring in between intervals.
I then pulled the fruit out of the freezer and started drizzling the kabobs with melted chocolate.
Some of the kabobs I coated with a drizzle and some I dunked completely in chocolate! To me, the drizzled fruit kabobs looked prettier 🙂
I plated them up and headed outside for a lovely, peaceful picnic!
These chocolate drizzled fruit kabobs were the perfect dessert with the grilled caprese zucchini roll-ups I made!
It really was the perfect lunch!
A Fun Twist! Banana Split Sticks
If you’d like to make these kabobs even more fun, turn them into Banana Split Sticks! I made these once the kids got home and they devoured them! By adding a marshmallow and peanuts they really were the real deal! Snag my recipe HERE!
