Hogwarts House Color Fruit Kabobs

Author Meagan

Ingredients

  • Blueberries
  • Pineapple - You can slice a full one or you can use canned pineapple. It just depends on the time on your hands.
  • Strawberries
  • Green Grapes
  • Kiwi - This has a bit of a bite but my kids love kiwi
  • Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips - These are the only brand of allergy friendly chocolate chips I have found that I actually enjoy. The price is a little higher but sometimes there are coupons on the bag.
  • Coconut Oil - I prefer the version I pick up at Aldis. It's great quality at a reasonable price!
  • Small kabob sticks We used Lollipop sticks.

Instructions

  1. Making your fruit kabobs
  2. Wash all fruit before you begin. - This will save you time in the long run. You won't have to clean it at each step. This is also insures that all fruit is safe to consume and won't accidentally make children sick. With all the current produce related sicknesses, this is a smart measure.
  3. Start by doing the blueberries. I recommend looking for the little circle on the top and putting your stick thru there.
  4. Set these aside on wax paper or foil.
  5. Slice your pineapple and strawberries. - You can go as thick or as thin as you want with these. I preferred to go a bit thinner as I knew I would be drizzling chocolate on them at a later time.
  6. Make sure to slice extra pineapple for your Hufflepuff kabobs. - The kabobs will be only pineapple so you want to make sure that you slice plenty. You could also do pineapple rings for these as that would be really neat!
  7. This is your Gryffindor kabob. - Because of this you will put them on in order of red, yellow, red, yellow, and so on. It shouldn't be hard to get the fruit to go on the stick.
  8. Add only the pineapple to a kabob for Hufflepuff.  - You can make the pineapple pieces whatever size you prefer.
  9. Set these aside on wax paper or foil. - This is a great way to avoid it sticking to anything.
  10. Peel and slice kiwi. - You can slice these any way you want. I went with triangles.
  11. Slice your grapes. - You can put them on whole. If you have smaller children attending, slicing them up can be safer.
  12. Add them to your kabobs. - For mine, I did a pattern of grapes and kiwi. You could do these any way you like.
  13. Set these aside on wax paper or foil.
  14. Set up your double boiler. - You can use two pots as well. Fill the bottom pot with water about 3/4 full. Set your second pot in the first.
  15. Add a teaspoon of coconut to your top pot and let it melt.
  16. Add 1/2 of your chocolate chips to the container. - You can use more if you have a larger group to cook for. We didn't have as many people so this was sufficient and I had enough leftover to make chocolate covered strawberries.
  17. Stir continuously over medium heat until melted. - I find that a wooden spoon gets the best coverage for stirring. However, you can use what you have on hand. Don't go buy a wooden spoon just for this recipe.
  18. Drizzle your fruit kabobs with melted chocolate. - For Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw, this offers darker colors to complete the house colors. I find that using a spoon to drizzle it is the perfect option.
