hearty fruit kabobs

 How fabulous are these?!?

heart kabobs
I knew I had to make these the first time I saw the idea.  Valentines dinner gave me the perfect excuse, though they would obviously be lovely any day. 🙂
This was super simple and a lot of fun.  It did take a tiny bit of a time commitment to cut the fruit and assemble, but it was worth it.

DSCN0161 (2)What’s Needed:
Fruit.  Be creative!  (I used watermelon, kiwi, cantaloupe, pineapple, strawberries and blueberries)
Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter
Kabob Sticks (or whatever they are called…they have them at most grocery stores)

I bought halves of the pineapple and melons and cut slices of desired thickness to cut the hearts.  The kiwi and strawberries were easy to quickly slice and heart up.  One thing I would say is to make sure the hearts are thick enough so that they stay intact on the stick.  I made mine about half an inch thick.
I then put one of each fruit on each stick with blueberries in between.  A lot of fun could be had with less fruit or more fruit or fun color arrangements!
I thought about making a yogurt dip with a little bit of cinnamon for these, but just kinda forgot to…

I went for the breakfast for dinner thing with these and served with eggs, bacon and heart-shaped pancakes, of course!

Enjoy!

This beautiful  idea was inspired by mint in the middle
