Beautiful and tasty too!

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,

Great with fresh summer fruit!

I brought this along to a BBQ and it went over very well. What a great way to serve up those fresh summer strawberries!

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!
