My sons played football when they were younger.

Every year, the league they played for hosted a big homecoming game and went all out to make it memorable for the kids.

There’d be moon bounces, cotton candy, giant popcorn machines and a parade of the kids riding in the back of all the Dads’ trucks decked out with homemade posters and crepe paper.

Moms and Dads would all be dressed in the team colors and taking a million and one pictures.

It was an event we loved!

At each homecoming, there’d be a big bake sale to raise money for the team’s uniforms and supplies.

These dessert kabobs were always my contribution and were always one of the first things to sell out because both the kids and parents loved eating these fun, loaded treats.

What is a dessert kabob?

A dessert kabob is a portable, playful way to serve up a mini dessert buffet.

My kabobs include things like brownie pieces, marshmallows and fruit all served skewered up on a stick for maximum fun.

Ingredients

These can be easily customized to suit your preferences. My version needs:

  • Brownies– I use my favorite brownie mix and bake them according to the recipe on the box. Then let them cool and cut them into small squares. 
  • Berries– A combination of blueberries and strawberries.
  • Marshmallows– Use the big marshmallows to make it easier to skewer them.

You’ll also need wooden skewers.

How to Make

Making these is a breeze!

Just alternate threading fruit, marshmallows, and brownies onto your skewers until you’ve achieved the desired look and amount.

Then, serve them as is, or wrap in cellophane if packaging for an event.

That’s it! You’re done!

Some ideas include: 

  • Drizzling melted chocolate and sprinkles on the assembled skewers.
  • Switching up the fruit.
  • Adding Rice Krispy treat squares into the mix.
  • Whatever else you can think of!

Tips and Tricks

  • Make it easy on yourself and bake the brownies ahead of time.
  • The kids can help you assemble the skewers.
  • Use big marshmallows instead of mini marshmallows to make it easier to skewer the kabobs.
  • Having a party and don’t want to assemble them? Make a dessert kabob station and set out the ingredients in bowls and let guests assemble them.
