This is a great way to take dessert out to the grill. The lightly grilled fruits and warm chocolate sauce makes a fantastic dessert for any cookout.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Total Time: 23 minutes
Yield: Serves 6
- 2 ripe bananas, peeled
- 6 slices pound cake (1/2 inch thick cut into 1 inch squares)
- 2 medium ripe nectarines or peaches
- 6 whole strawberries, stemmed
- 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 5-ounce can evaporated milk (2/3 cup)
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
To prepare sauce, melt chocolate chips and butter or margarine over low heat in a small saucepan. Add in the sugar and slowly add the evaporated milk. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and stir for 8 minutes. Remove and set aside. Remove seeds from peaches or nectarines and cut the fruit into wedges. Slice the bananas and pound cake into 1-inch squares. Thread the peaches or nectarines, cake, and bananas alternately onto six 12-inch-long skewers. To each skewer add one strawberry.
Grill each kebab about 5 minutes or until cake is lightly browned, making sure to turn only once. To serve, push contents from skewers onto dessert plates and lightly drizzle with warm chocolate sauce.
