Brownie Kebabs

Because I love these kebabs and devour these by the kebab-ful and eat these babies because they are delicious and nutritious, I decided that I definitely needed to get a sweet kebab down my gullet immediately. I mean, really, after all the savory kebabs available to make out there, don’t you feel a little sorry for the poor, neglected dessert kebab?

Brownie Kebabs

Enter the brownie kebab! Perfect for the upcoming 4th of July holiday and any other time you get the hankering to stick brownies and fruit on a skewer, drizzle with hot fudge sauce and eat yourself sick.

Brownie Kebabs

The concept is simple and can be tailored a myriad of ways: 1) start with a pan of baked and cooled brownies (preferably thrown in the refrigerator to chill and firm up to glorious decadent proportions), 2) choose a few other kebab-worthy items, such as fruit (strawberries and blueberries in this case), marshmallows, etc – the sky is the limit here, 3) thread the brownies and fruit onto the skewers, drizzle with chocolate sauce if desired (why not??) and eat.

Brownie Kebabs

Brownies are heavenly in any form, if you ask me, but as kebabs? They’ve never tasted better. Trust me. (And they are a heck of a lot more fun to eat this way, too.)

Brownie {& Fruit} Kebabs

Yield: Makes 16-20 kebabs (depending on how big you cut the brownies and how many brownie pieces you thread on the skewer)

Brownie {& Fruit} Kebabs

Note: This recipe is extremely adaptable. Use the brownie recipe of your choice (I used this one), fruits that are in season and taste great with brownies and any other kebab-worthy ingredient you like. I drizzled mine with hot fudge sauce but you could just as easily melt chocolate chips for drizzling, drizzle with caramel sauce - the options are endless!

Ingredients

  • 9X13-inch pan of Brownies (chilled and cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 pint blueberries, washed
  • 1 pint strawberries, washed and hulled
  • Large marshmallows
  • Hot Fudge Sauce for drizzling, if desired
  • Bamboo/wooden skewers

Directions

  1. Alternate threading brownies, fruit and marshmallows onto wooden skewers. Drizzle with hot fudge sauce, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    What a great idea! I absolutely adore your recipe for brownies, though they are so delicious and rich that I know I should not make them very often, since I am trying to lose baby weight gain, instead of continue to look pregnant. :) Plus, my daughter adores any fresh fruit and marshmallows.
