Cake and Fruite Kabobs - Taste of Home

Here's one of my original recipes that was published in the Taste of Home Dec/Jan 2008 issue in the New Year's Eve Appetizer section. This is a great recipe for any holiday party.

Cake And Fruit Kabobs


1 large red apple, cut into 16 chunks
1 large green apple, cut into 16 chunks
1 large firm banana, cut into eight chunks
2 tablespoons lemon juice
16 fresh strawberries
8 seedless red grapes
8 seedless green grapes
3 slices pound cake, cut into 1-inch cubes

1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup orange juice


In a small bowl, combine apples and banana; add lemon juice and toss gently. Thread fruit and cake alternately onto eight wooden skewers.
For sauce, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine semisweet chips and milk on high for about 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Stir in orange juice. Serve with kabobs. Yield: 8 servings (1 cup sauce).
