Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs



One of my go-to party desserts are strawberry shortcake kabobs. I ran across them a year or two ago on Pinterest, from The Inspired Collection. They are easy to make, yummy, and they involve sticks! Everything tastes better when you eat it off a stick, no?

Ingredients and Supplies:

- Strawberries
- Lemon pound cake
- White chocolate chips
- Wooden skewers
- Knife
- Cutting board
- Glass bowl
- Spatula


How to Make These:

1.  Cut the pound cake into cubes. 

Try to keep them fairly uniform.



2. Cut the tops off the strawberries.





3. Skewer the fruit and cake. 

I like to alternate, starting and ending with the cake. You can make longer skewers or smaller ones. I like the smaller ones for parties because they are a little less of a commitment--especially when there are all sorts of yummy things to sample!



4. Put all the kabobs on large plates together, to get ready for spreading the chocolate.





5. Melt the white chocolate. 

We did it in the microwave, starting with small spurts of time (about 30 seconds), stirring between each time.  It took us about three times in the microwave before the chips were melted.

Note: Be careful not to over microwave the white chocolate, or you'll end up with a thick blob that is hard to spread. We waited until the chocolate was just starting to melt--it still looked like chips in the bowl, but melted as you stirred it.





6. Spoon the chocolate over the kabobs. 

I think this works best when you are neat and orderly, but you can also do it more free form (like the one in the top left). It tastes good either way. :)


7. Enjoy!




 I've brought these to birthday parties, July 4 parties, and holiday parties. I think they would also be great for a Valentine's Day party. What is your go-to dessert for parties?
