02 Jun Spring Recipe Series: Grilled Fruit Kabobs With Chocolate
As the days are getting longer and we enter into summer, we thought it was only appropriate to round out the Spring Recipe Series with this delicious creation from the one and only Pam Bruan!
This is a fun dessert to serve to company in the summer, and a great way to use the grill.
2 mangos, peeled and cut in1 inch pieces
2 bananas, peeled and cut in 1 inch chunks
2 peaches, cut in wedges
1 cup cherries, pitted
½ fresh pineapple, cut in 1 inch chunks
Skewer fruit pieces randomly onto six 12 inch skewers. Place on a clean, medium-high, oiled grill and cook until fruit is soft and caramelized, about 5 minutes on each side.
Using a pot holder or oven glove, remove skewers and place on a large platter. Drizzle with the Melted Chocolate.
1 cup dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao), cut into small pieces
Place the candy in the top pot of the double boiler and stir until the candy melts and becomes smooth. Be careful not to splash any water into the chocolate in the top of the double boiler or the chocolate will seize and become unusable.
