Bite Size Fruit Skewers with Champagne Chocolate Drizzle


4 ounces semisweet or dark chocolate
1 tablespoon heavy cream
7 tablespoons champagne
pink grapefruit, supremed and cut into small chunks
strawberries, hulled and cut into quarters
sprigs of mint


In a double boiler, melt the chocolate with heavy cream.
Once melted, take off heat and add the champagne.
Stir to combine.
On each tooth pick, place a piece of strawberry, a piece of grapefruit, a mint leaf, then another piece of strawberry and another piece of grapefruit.
Drizzle the chocolate champagne mixture over the miniature skewers of fruit, or use as a dipping sauce.



This treat is almost designed for Valentines Day. It is a simple little recipe that takes strawberries and melted chocolate to a new level of fun, flavor, and presentation. The dark chocolate has been melted with cream and mixed with a little champagne, and along with the classic strawberry, we’ve added grapefruit and mint leaves for a richness of flavor. These bite size little skewers from heaven are decadent, fresh, healthy, and romantic, and they only take about 15 minutes to put together.
