Fresh Fruit Skewers

I love almost any kind of fruit, and it's really fun to put it on skewers with marshmallows.  In these pictures I'm using chunks of cantaloupe, red and green grapes, and strawberries, but you can use any fruit that you like.  If you have mint in your garden, you can put some of the mint on the serving plate to make your skewers look even prettier.

Ingredients Needed:

  1. A package of marshmallows  (you can use fancy ones like these that my Grandma gets in Amsterdam, or you can use the big white or colored ones from the grocery store)

  2. Four or five different kinds of fruit; if it is watermelon or cantaloupe, have an adult help you cut it into chunks.  If it is strawberries or grapes, just wash them.  You can use any of your favorite fruits like melons, pineapple, berries, mango chunks, or grapes

  3. Wooden Skewers; these are 5" skewers, but you can use 4" or 6" too.

 

How to Make Fresh Fruit Skewers

  • First you take a skewer and put either a piece of fruit or a marshmallow on it.  Here I'm starting with a marshmallow.
  • Then just add pieces of fruit to the skewer.  It doesn't matter which order you put the fruit and marshmallows on the skewer.  It can be just any way you want

  • Keep putting fruit and marshmallows until you fill the skewers up.
  • This is how they look when they are finished!  You can eat them now or cover them with plastic wrap and put them in the refrigerator until it's time to eat.
