Good for you fruit with a yummy chocolate strawberry.

Recipe Ingredients for Rainbow Fruit Skewers

1 kiwi, peeled
1 large orange, peeled
1/2 cup blueberries
1 cup pineapple chunks
2 1/2 ounces dark chocolate
1 pound strawberries, washed and trimmed

Recipe Directions for Rainbow Fruit Skewers

  1. Cut the kiwi and orange crosswise into 4 rounds, then cut each round into 3 pieces, so you end up with 12 pieces of each fruit. To prepare the skewers, put 2 blueberries about 1/3 of the way down the skewer, add a piece of kiwi, a pineapple chunk, a piece of orange, and top with a chocolate dipped strawberry.

  2. Line a tray with waxed paper. Break up the chocolate into small pieces and place about two thirds of it into the bowl of a double boiler over barely simmering water. Make sure that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Stir occasionally, very gently, until the chocolate has melted, about 1 minute. Remove the bowl from the double boiler and add the rest of the chocolate, stirring gently until it has melted. Dip the strawberries in the chocolate, place on the waxed paper and chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes until chocolate is set.
