Fresh fruit skewers are made with apple, pear, pineapple, grapes, and strawberries with a light vanilla honey glaze drizzled over the top. The honey glaze adds just the right bit of sweetness to make these fruit chunks disappear quickly.
When you need a fun snack idea for school age children during summer vacation, get them involved with helping put the fruit on the skewers while you mix up the honey glaze.
These fruit skewers are bright and colorful and also look great on a brunch buffet.
The glaze also allows the beautiful bright colors of the fruit to shine through. What a great way to serve summery fresh fruit!
Chunks of fresh strawberries, pineapple, grapes, apples and pear are gently sweetened with honey and flavored with a hint of vanilla. Your children will think this is a very special treat.
