    Hit of any party!

    Cheryl Thielen from BELLEVILLE, MI

    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!

    Chocalate kabobs

    Amanda Stricker from FORT LAUDERDALE, FL

    I found the pound cake too hard to work with. What I used that worked wonderfully was the little frozen chocolate covered cheesecake bites. They are beautiful and delicious.

    The Best Kabobs yet!

    Pat Pruitt from SPRINGDALE, AR

    We have made these at least 5 time, each time changing the sauce. What a treat! We used fresh peaches, strawberries, bananas and made a carmel sauce. This was great. We tried blueberries(a little hard to skewer) bananas, rasberries, pineapple and necterines with chocolate sauce. We have just put our imagination to work and bingo! A new dessert from the same recipe. This is great! Cantelope is good an any of them. Watermelon works on some but not all of them. Just try what your family likes and believe me, there will be no leftovers. Fruit is good for you and makes a fabulous dessert. You are great to keep the wonderful healthy recipes coming. Thank you!

    Yummy!

    gloria raschka from CHICAGO, IL

    A great fast & easy recipe to use for a quick touch of elegance! I found that using angel food cake worked just as well. It's also an easy way to get those 'persnickity' kids to eat fruit! It seems you can always get 'em with chocolate!

    This recipe is good when you use strawberries, raspberries and blueberries with caramel sauce and whipcream.

    These were very easy to do and make a lovely presentation. My dad's comment was, "Very refreshing!" I will definitely do these for a church social or family picnic before the summer ends.

    Jazzy dessert

    Ruth Ann Looker from CUYAHOGA FALLS, OH

    I made these for a group of friends, and they were a huge hit. They make a very pretty presentation, are very easy to assemble and taste delicious. The sauce is versatile too - what was leftover was very good on cheesecake and the leftover poundcake.

    Must look good to taste good

    Rather than laying kabobs on a plate, stick the kabobs in a fresh pineapple for a memorable presentation!

    Dessert On a Stick - Love It!

    Angela Pitt from ORLANDO, FL

    I'm glad I found this recipe and I quickly put it to work for two picnics; one at work and one barbeque at a friend's. Both times everyone got a kick out of the presentation. I did 25 kabobs for each occasion and they lasted about 5 minutes, ten tops. They all came looking for more and were disappointed when they had to settle for the other desserts. I told them all desserts are good, no big deal. You really know how to spoil people. I've never had a bad experience from anything I make from Nestle. Good job!

    Awesome & easy

    Suzie Bicehouse from EVANS CITY, PA

    What a quick & yummy idea! This adds a bit of flare to ordinary dessert time. Easy for the kids to help with and to eat. Great for parties too, just double or triple the recipe! Loved it!

    Delicious

    Melissa Scheetz from Milltown, NJ

    These were great and easy. The only problem I had was the pound cake was too fresh and it crumbled in the chocolate. So I spooned the chocolate on. Make a bowl of whipped cream for an extra treat.

    Great for parties !!

    Linda Randles from NORTH CANTON, OH

    I made some of these for the Ladies club meeting I was having. They loved them. There was more time talking about this recipe than the meeting stuff we was SUPPOSE to be talking about. Great recipe and a definite keeper.
