Chocolate-Drizzled Fruit Skewers

Need a last minute Christmas dessert? Whip up a platter of this Chocolate-Drizzled Christmas Fruit! Just 3 ingredients necessary to a healthy and easy dessert recipe for Christmas!

Can I be real with you guys? Sometimes I feel bad about posting certain recipes. I know you’re always asking for easier recipes, but green and red fruit + drizzled chocolate doesn’t feel particularly innovative.

My friend Jess was over helping me when we were shooting these and she assured me that it wasn’t a total cop-out. It may only require 3 ingredients, but there are so many of you out there who WANT recipes this easy, that are healthy and can be made in minutes. Just because I like to torture myself in the kitchen, doesn’t mean you should have to.

And especially not during Christmas time when priorities should be on spending time with loved ones, not slaving away trying to feed them.

Here’s What You Need

  • strawberries – look for bright, plump berries that aren’t bruised or moldy.
  • green grapes – look for firm grapes that are securely attached to the stem! Avoid shriveled or mushy grapes.
  • chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate – I use Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chips but any chocolate works!

How to Make Chocolate Drizzled Fruit

STEP 1: Thread the fruit onto wooden skewers, alternating between strawberries and grapes. Lay flat on parchment paper or a large plate.

STEP 2: Melt the chocolate over a double-boiler on the stovetop or in the microwave, heating in 10 second increments. Make sure you don’t overcook and burn the chocolate!

STEP 3: Use a spoon or piping bag (or ziplock bag!) to drizzle the fruit with chocolate. Let sit for 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

How to Store Leftovers

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator. I haven’t tried freezing them but I bet you could freeze for longer storage (and a refreshing treat!).

    They are always perfect for those last-minute dishes you need to make for a party. And you can’t go wrong with chocolate either so it really is just perfect. I think it’s a great idea to post such a simple and easy recipe that everyone will love. I think your own blog should be a balance between what you love to cook/eat and what you know your readers will love.
