February is full of all kinds of chocolate- and as much as I’d LOVE to gobble it all up, I am trying really hard to eat healthy and have healthy choices for my family. We went to a last minute pot luck last week, and I was asked to bring dessert. I looked through my cupboards, and the dessert pickings were bare-BUT I had lots of fruit- and 1/4 bag of mini chocolate chips…so I decided to make a healthier treat with a touch of sweetness –
Chocolate Laced Fruit Kabobs
Take assorted fruit, layer it on skewers. Our favorites are strawberries and blueberries! Melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips in a small bowl with 1 tsp oil-about 45 seconds, and stir until smooth. Drizzle the kabobs with the melted chocolate- lay flat on wax paper until chocolate is set.
My kids could NOT get enough of these kabobs – and they were gone WAY before the cupcakes that someone else brought. . I’ve found that if I OFFER healthy options, most often that will be the one they choose!
This is a quick easy treat to make that has a great presentation! ,
