Dessert Kebabs

Fresh fruit is my idea of a perfect dessert, but adding a decadent dip makes it more elegant and party worthy! And since of Progressive Eats theme is kebabs, pairing a rainbow of skewered fruit with a white chocolate dip was the perfect way to end our virtual meal.  Feel free to thread your favorite fruits, even interspersing squares of pound cake or marshmallows, but definitely make this splendid dip. Made with melted white chocolate, cream, mascarpone and a splash of vanilla, it’s a piece of cake to throw together and even easier to make disappear!

Kebab Fest

Kebabs are perfect party fare. Whether for Memorial Day, a grad party or summer picnic, food on stick is easy to eat and oh, so scrumptious! I concocted a similar dip when one of my children graduated from high school—the kebabs alone were perfect for those who wanted a lighter dessert, and the dreamy dip was ideal for the party goers who preferred a more sinful treat! And just in time for all the summer gatherings, we’ve compiled a kebab-fest with  a variety of kebabs, bread, sides and desserts.

  2. Oh, Liz, that dip is decadent! Love it! I bet you are totally the hostess with the mostest–everything you make is so elegant and delicious. xo

  3. During the summer, I love simple fresh fruit as a treat…but that dip puts these into the decadently delicious zone!

  4. The white chocolate and mascarpone dip sounds really delicious and a new twist to the traditional dark chocolate dip.

  5. Beautiful and delicious ! What else?
    What a wonderful idea 😉

  6. This is just perfect for summer get togethers!!

  7. Lizzy I love yours kebabs fruits!
    I love how look Lizzy!
    XO

  8. Mmmmm! I love fruit dipped like this – the white chocolate in yours sounds scrumptious.

  9. lovely idea! I love your fruit kebab recipe! Such a perfect treat!

  10. Your dip sounds decadently delicious. A perfect addition to our Fest.

  11. I would be thrilled to find these at a potluck or picnic! The delicious dip would definitely make them dessert for me!

  12. It’s funny that in recent experience, parties with a fruit-based dessert usually mean clean plates at the end of the night–it’s great to throw in some healthiness once in a while! Love this idea!

  13. I would not be leaving the side of that dip bowl. People might have to reach for it over or around me, but I won’t leave the station! Such a delicious idea!

  14. How pretty. These should be called ‘Rainbow Kebabs’ as they have all the colours of the spectrum. I do love fresh fruit and this is a beautiful way to present it and I’m loving the sound of the white chocolate mascarpone dipping sauce xx

  15. I’m bringing treats to Bible study tomorrow and these fruit kebabs would be just perfect. Love that white chocolate dip! Now if only I had you to make them for me ;).

  16. I like the way you threaded the fruit―the colors are beautiful. The dip is a gem, and I’d need to be reminded of skinny tips to keep from indulging too much. Lovely work!

  17. These are gorgeous and will make a great healthy snack!

  18. Fun summer treat!

  19. Love this healthier dessert with a sinful dash of mascarpone dip, that stuff is addictive!

  20. That dip sounds amazing! Beautiful kebabs too! I love all the colors.

  21. Kebabs always seem like grown up kid food and who wouldn’t want to be a kid again? Perfect way to start summer.

  22. Think I could skip the other courses and dive into dessert at the Berg residence =) A festival of fruit and pound cake on a skewer looks to be grrrreat. Especially with the white chocolate mascarpone dip. I do admire your fortitude in preferring straight fruit…P.s. I credited you as the inspiration for my Glute-Free Japanese Matcha and Lavender (and White Chocolate) Cake.

  23. I love snacking on fresh fruit this time of year. Adding the dip makes them perfect for parties! Love this idea!

  24. Love these fruity kebabs, dear! They make great party dish! xoxo

  25. It’s always more fun on a stick! 🙂 The dip makes it even more special 🙂

  26. Liz, I think this is the greatest way to serve a dessert to a crowd! You could get them all done ahead and whip them out of the fridge just before serving – my kind of party food! I love the combination of white chocolate and mascarpone, but hadn’t thought of it for a dip, brilliant! A version of this just may show up on one of my Chocolate Monday posts 😉

  27. These fruity kebabs are so colourful, and are a healthy dessert.

  28. I love the combination of mascarpone and fruit. Of course, the white chocolate doesn’t hurt and the whipping cream makes the dip so fluffy and light. Fruit is always a great finish to a meal, and with this fabulous dip, even better.

  29. What is it about fruit kebobs that people just love…you can make a fruit bowl and at the end of the evening there is still fruit in it, but if you put the same amount of fruit into kebobs, there is nary a one left halfway through the party? And a great dip, they disappear even faster. You have a real winner here, so beautifully presented.

  30. Anything with fruit and white chocolate goes quickly at our house, and it is gorgeous to boot! So excited to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

  31. Lizzy,
    Such a fun and yummy dessert. Wish had some now.
    Annamaria

  32. Yep, these would disappear quickly and one of my kids would probably like the dip bowl clean!

  33. Looks so tasty and nutritious!!! Will try it

  34. Love and vibrant kababs i must say
