When I was getting married, I had a friend tell me to eat lots of fruit before the honeymoon because it makes your skin taste sweet. I don’t know about that, but it is for sure healthy for you nonetheless. Here is a festive way to serve fruit that is so fun to eat, it’s sure to sweeten up your Valentine’s Day, or to bring a little romance to bridal shower hors d’oeuvres.
Here is all you need: Strawberries, Grapes, (you want the oblong ones, round grapes don’t work as well) and some skewers.
Cut the top off of the strawberries at two 45 degree angles, to create a “V” shape.
Slice your grapes crossways, also at a 45 degree angle.
Spin one half of each grape upside-down so it makes a heart, like this.
Alternate fruits until each skewer is filled.
I have always found Valentine’s Day a little commercial, but it is a good reminder to be thankful for all of the loves in our lives that God has blessed us with, not just the romantic ones but family and friends as well.
Delight Your Sweetheart With Heart Kabobs
Fruit kabobs wrapped in cellophane tied off with a bow make for an adorable gift from the heart. Include a sweet handwritten card expressing your feelings too.
Serve chilled heart skewers for a light dessert after romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. The natural sugars make them a healthier alternative to chocolate while keeping total indulgence.
Dip ends in melted chocolate or yogurt for extra decadence. Feed them to each other for playful, laughter-filled moments.
However you choose to present heart shaped fruit kabobs, these edible symbols of affection will win over your special someone and become a tasty new tradition
