How to Make Chocolate Fruit Kabobs
Chocolate and fruit are a combination made in food heaven! These chocolate kabobs are so fun and easy to make! You’ll need just a few supplies to make these. Grab your favorite fruit and berries, some chocolate melts and get started! You’ll also need some wooden skewers or plastic sticks for skewering the fruit. Make sure the skewers are sturdy to hold up the fruit and berries! You can also decorate the kabobs with sprinkles and white chocolate.
- Skewer the fruit: wash your fruit and berries and pat them dry. Cut larger pieces of fruit, such as pineapple and apples, into small, bite-sized pieces. Skewer the fruit onto the skewers, alternating with different types of fruit.
- Melt the Chocolate: I recommend using chocolate melts for this chocolate fruit. It sets quickly and at room temperature, so no need for the refrigerator! You can melt the chocolate in the microwave or on the stove top using a double boiler. Stir the chocolate often and heat until it’s smooth and uniform.
- Add the garnishes: Dip the prepare fruit kabobs into the melted chocolate and set them onto a tray to set. If you want to add garnishes (sprinkles, toffee bits, chopped nuts), make sure to add them while the chocolate is still melted so they stick! You can also drizzle melted white chocolate over the kabobs!
Which Fruit to Use
The fruit kabobs can be made with a large variety of fruit! Some of my favorites, besides strawberry, are pineapple and grapes! Who knew that chocolate pineapple would be so good?! Also, try apples, kiwis, banana and even mandarin wedges. If you want to use banana, brush the fruit with a bite of lemon juice first to keep it from discoloring!

How to Make Chocolate Fruit Kabobs (video)
- 20 strawberries
- 1 fresh pineapple, chopped
- 1/2 pound green grapes
- 14 to 16 bamboo skewers
- 2 cups chocolate melting wafers
- 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
- I used strawberries, grapes and pineapple but feel free to include your favorite fruit. Here are some suggestions: bananas, apples, red grapes, kiwi, balled melons and/or cantaloupe, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries. Wash the fruit ahead of time and allow to dry.
- Skewer the fruit onto the bamboo skewers in desired order and place onto paper towels to absorb any remaining moisture.
- Prepare the chocolate. I recommend using chocolate melting wafers. Melt them in the microwave or on the stove top using a double boiler. Stir until the chocolate is smooth.
- Dip the fruit skewers into the chocolate until the fruit is half covered. Place the fruit chocolate side up on a cooling rack and allow the chocolate to set. IF you want to add sprinkles, add them when the chocolate is still melted.
- To add the white chocolate drizzle, melt some white chocolate chips and place into the a ziplock bag. Cut off the tip and drizzle the chocolate over the fruit skewers. Allow the chocolate to set for about 1 hour. If you're in a hurry, place the chocolate into the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
- Enjoy the fruit kabobs the same day, or within 24 hours. Can also be prepared in the evening for the next day!
Your dessert allows looks so great! For this recipe, do you think I can use canned pineapple instead of fresh?
Thank you! I used fresh pineapple but I think canned would also work! 🙂
Also would it okay for it to sit out in room temperature for a few hours or best to sit in the fridge the whole time b4 consuming it?
You can keep them at room temperature for a few hours 🙂
Definitely going to try this. Especially for my grandchildren this New Year’s I can’t wait oh I can’t wait
This will be a fun one for the kids! Have fun making them and Happy New Year’s!
