My daughter thought it was the coolest thing that she saw and when I went back to the store, they told me they don't have them anymore. I think some of these things are seasonal and so I decided to make them for her. This was the first time I had a tough time making something because, my daughter and I ate most of the fruit and chocolate before it went on the skewer. Super easy to make and a lot of fun for both adults and kids. A perfect think to place on your dessert table and allow people to make their own skewers.
Microwave Safe Bowl
Measuring Cup and Spoon
2 bowls of even height
Strawberry - 12 ( plus extra to much while slicing)
Banana - 2
Dark Chocolate ( 75% Cocoa) - 1 cup finely chopped ( it depends on how much chocolate you like to have on your skewers. Chocolate chip can also be used.)
Butter - 2 tbsp
1. Clean and cut the banana and strawberries breath wise into 1/4 - 1/2 inch disc.
2. Add chocolate and butter to a bowl and microwave to a minute until the chocolate starts to melt. ( Note: Please check the power levels in your microwave. It might vary depending on it)
5. Roll out some parchment paper on your work surface and place 2 bowls of equal height about 9 inches apart. This helps to hold the skewers.
7. Using the squeeze bottle as swiftly as you can drizzle the chocolate going from bottom to top all over the skewers. Turn the skewer over and do the same on the other side.
8. Transfer the bowls to the fridge and place the skewers there and allow for them to set. It takes about 20 minutes. Again it all depends on the amount of chocolate drizzled.
9. You will have a lot of chocolate drippings on the parchment paper. Ask you little ones to make beautiful chocolate faces like mine did. She called her master piece "The Chocolate Faces. For those of you who think its wasting chocolate, allow the painting to dry and using the knife scrape out the chocolate and pop it into your mouth.
