This strawberry Shortcake kabobs are your ticket to becoming a backyard-barbecue legend, perfect for 4th of July any other time you get the hankering to stick shortcake cubes and fruit on a skewer, drizzle with white chocolate and eat yourself sick.
Enter the strawberry Shortcake kebab!
You have been tasked with bringing one of the easiest possible dishes to your friends’ picnic: fruit. I know, sounds like nothing special.
Buuut, when you arrive waving with strawberry and shortcake cubes on skewer in one hand, and Strawberry Shortcake kabobs plate in other, the adults are wowed. The kids are delighted and immediately begin scarfing fruit instead of chips and mini cupcakes.
This will feed a large crowd, but no dessert plates to wash.
You are a hero !!
Nah. It’s so easy!
The concept is simple and can be tailored a myriad of ways. Start with a pan of baked and cooled shortcake or angel food cake. Choose a few other kebab-worthy items, such as beautiful red strawberries, blueberries, pineapples chunks, etc – the sky is the limit here, thread the shortcake cubes and fruit onto the skewers, drizzle with white chocolate sauce and……And you’re all done!
Super simple, or what?
This will feed a large crowd, you can assemble it in the morning, and refrigerate until ready to eat. You can even buy angel food cake loaf, instead of baking a shortcake, froze it, and then chopped it into chunks. Coordinate the colors to match the theme of your celebration. Red, white and blue sprinkles would rock for your 4th of July party!
I have even heard of people grilling shortcake, so you could grill the shortcake pieces before assembling the kabobs!
Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs
- 2 boxes strawberries
- 1 box of white cake mix
- 3/4 cup of Greek vanilla yogurt
- 2 egg whites
- 1 1/3 cups of water
- 1 bag of white chocolate chips
- Combine the cake mix, greek yogurt, egg whites and water in a bowl.
- Mix until smooth and pour into a greased cake pan or dish. (9×13)
- Bake at 350 for 20-25min until toothpick comes out clean or according to directions on the box.
- Cut stems off of strawberries and halve them if need to in order to create uniform sizes.
- Cut shortcake into 2-inch cubes.
- Take skewer and alternate strawberries and shortcake cubes. (I like to do three or four of each per stick).
- In a glass bowl melt chocolate in the microwave for about two minutes stirring every every 30 seconds.
- Once fully melted, insert it into a large plastic bag and cut off the corner tip.
- Drizzle all over kabobs and place in fridge to set.
