Banana and Strawberry Chocolate Drizzled Skewers

Pin It

This is our alternative to fondue. We love having fondue, whether it is at home or at a restaurant (we happen to live two blocks away from one...). But what does a fondue lover does during the summer months or when money is short to spend on fondue? The skewer you see on the picture is my answer to that.  I think bananas and strawberries go really well together, and what fruit doesn't like to be covered in chocolate?

I take some chocolate chips, melt it in the microwave and stir cream until the right consistency. Sure it can be done on the stove using a double boiler but the idea here is to have as little work as possible. The strawberries are washed, dried and leaves removed. Bananas are chopped into fairly large pieces. Once the fruits are in the skewer, it's just drizzle some chocolate and let it set.  Yum!

I am so making this for my best friends 21st birthday. It'll be a nice refreshing dessert (as well as cake!) especially for the 25 something people going to be there!

Thanks for the awesome idea!

@Anonymous - wait until the strawberries are on sale. I see them at discounted prices very often at my local gocery store (which is a chain). But you can use this idea with any fruits that you like, if they don't fit on a skewer, just drizzle the chocolate over the fruits in a bowl.
