Ingredients

  • 2 firm ripe bananas
  • 2 Tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/2 Cup red grapes (about 16)
  • 1/2 Cup green grapes (about 16)
  • 8 10-inch wooden skewers
  • 1 1/2 Ounces dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa solids), finely chopped

Preparation

Step 1:

Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Cut the banana into ½-inch thick rounds. Place in a small bowl and toss gently with the orange juice.

Step 2:

Skewer the fruit, alternating two grapes for each piece of banana and place the fruit skewers onto the lined tray.

Step 3:

Place the chocolate in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir well, and microwave another 10 seconds if necessary to melt the chocolate. Using a spoon drizzle the melted chocolate onto the fruit skewers.

Step 4:

Place the tray in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Once frozen, skewers may be transferred to a sealable plastic bag where they will keep in the freezer for up to a week. Allow to soften at room temperature for 5 minutes before eating.
