Dessert Kabob's

Hi Everyone! Hope that everyone had an awesome weekend! Ours was very relaxing, trying to enjoy our home this past weekend before we head to Virginia this week! I am so excited about this trip, but I am even more excited that this will be our last trip of 2011 until New Year’s Eve. Whew, we have been like gypsies this year, traveling like crazy. It has been fun but I am so ready to kick back and focus on our home and start some more great projects! Any who, this past weekend I celebrated my best friend S's birthday, and she had a nice get together at her home with all her girlfriends. We were all asked to bring ourselves, a dish, a drink, and some pj's. I knew I'd be eating good because all of the girls that were attending love to cook and make tasty treats!

I decided to make what I am calling, dessert kabobs. I got the idea from pinterest, and just tweaked it a bit. Here are the ingredients.

The original recipe called for pound cake, strawberries, and chocolate. Well, when I went to get the ingredients, I noticed there was lemon pound cake. Hmm..lemon and strawberries, that’s always a good combination, so I went with the lemon instead. When I went down the chocolate isle, I noticed a white chocolate calling my name. So I decided to switch from chocolate to white chocolate. Yum Yum.

Ingredients:
· 1 lemon pound cake
· 2 boxes strawberries
· White chocolate
· Kabob sticks





I cut the lemon into squares and cut the tops on the strawberries and placed them on the kabobs, alternating between pound cake and strawberries. I then melted the white chocolate, I have found the best way to melt chocolate is by steaming in, boil a pot of water and put a bowl that is safe to use on the top of the bowl, add a little oil to help thin it out. After the chocolate was melted it, I moved it into a plastic bag, cut of the corner, and squeezed the chocolate all over the kabobs. Put in the fridge for about 30 minutes and the chocolate will harden and be ready for serving!

This recipe turned out so delicious! And no kabob made it out alive! They were devoured! This was definitely a winning recipe, and ridiculously easy. Nearly impossible to mess up! If you make it, you will not be disappointed!

Thanks for reading! :)

  9. Delicious food. I added so many creams on it, which make more delicious and yummy. I am really mad for cream and oily test, also make in crispy style.

  14. I think these would be good with Rice Crispy Treats instead of the pound cake too!

  17. Hi, Kellie! Thanks for sharing this great idea!

    Quick question for you (or anyone reading this)...

    How long will these keep? You said 30 minutes in the fridge will help the chocolate harden, but how long before they HAVE to be served?

    I would like to make some for an event I'm throwing, but I would need to make them in advance. And I don't want to have soggy cake chunks!

    2. Hi, I know it's late for your party but I made these for my son's 3rd birthday party this weekend. We had about a 3 hour time window before we had a soggy mess. For 3 year olds it was a good thing. I skipped the chocolate (don't add any cream to the white chocolate, I did and it was ick) since I destroyed it. Big hit! Angel food cake is good too.

  23. Hi! Hint: put the chocolate in a plastic bag before you melt it---much cleaner and easier too

  24. What If you dip the strawberries ends slightly in the chocolate then the juices won't leach into the cake
