Fruit Kabobs and Dip
I offered to bring either an appetizer or dessert to a baby shower. I always like to bring something healthy, so I thought fresh fruit. Thinking what can I do with the fruit that would be different and pink, so this is what I did. It was fun to make, a bit time consuming, but a beautiful presentation!
- 40 pieces cut watermelon, honeydew melon, fresh pineapple, cantaloupe and small strawberries.
- 1 bag soft sugared pink candies
- 40 wooden skewers
- 2 bags white chocolate chips
- red food coloring
- Fruit Dip
- 1 container (16oz) vanilla fat free yogurt
- 1 container (16oz) fat free sour cream
- 2 - 8 pkg (8oz) fat free/low fat cream cheese , softened
- 3 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- Use a large wide deep pan for a double boiler. Fill half full of water. Use only a stainless steel or glass bowl. Add both bags of white chocolate chips in the bowl. Bring the water to a boil and lower to a simmer.
- Keep stirring until the chocolate starts melting and becomes smooth. Add a drop at a time of red food coloring until you get the color pink you like. Stir in well.
- I used a large sheet cake pan, I poured all the pink chocolate into the pan spreading it evenly.
- I laid out all 40 skewers, rolling them in the chocolate until coated. I took each one out and stood them in a stainless steel cup to harden.
- When all were done, I washed the pan, dried, covered it with plastic wrap and lightly spray oiled. Took each skewer and laid it on the pan.
- I took 1 of each fruit, two half strawberries and 2 pink candies.
- And started building my kabobs. I found it was easiest to put the harder fruit on first, then the more fragile fruit last. Ending with strawberries on each end and lastly a pink candy on each end.
- Add yogurt, sour cream, cream cheese, and vanilla in a bowl.
- Mix with an electric mixer all ingredients. Tint it pink by a drop at a time until you get the color you like.
- I put this on an oval glass platter, that was not flat, (reason, it gave the fruit a space beneath for any water draining from the fruit) It worked! Display with the fruit dip in the middle! The presentation was beautiful for the Baby Girl Shower!
