There’s just something about eating food on a stick that makes it more fun. These quick and easy dessert kabobs can be customized with any combination of treats you like. It’s also a great way to sneak some fruit into your family’s desserts.

Not only are these delicious, but assembling these Dessert Kabobs would be a great after school activity for your kids. They can enjoy munching on a few of the treats while preparing dessert for after dinner. Getting your kids involved in cooking at a young age will help them grow to love it while creating lasting memories.

Assembling these Dessert Kabobs is also a great opportunity for young children to practice making patterns. Make a model skewer and ask them to create a matching one. What could be better than a teaching activity you can eat when you’re done? 

You will need…

  • Strawberries
  • Marshmallows
  • Brownie Bites
  • Donut Holes
  • Rice Krispies Treats
  • Melting Chocolate
  • Skewers
  • Parchment Paper
  • Ziplock bag
  • Sheet pan

How to Make Quick and Easy Dessert Kabobs

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will make for easy cleanup later.
Wash the strawberries and cut off the leaf tops.
Cut Rice Krispies Treats into bite-size pieces.
Assemble treats onto skewers in your desired order. If small children are assisting, cut off the sharp tips of the skewers before assembling.
Place assembled skewers onto the lined baking sheet.

Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 second increments, stirring after each time until the chocolate is completely melted.
Carefully transfer the melted chocolate to a Ziplock bag. Work the chocolate down to a bottom corner. Cut a small hole in the bottom corner of the bag and drizzle it over the assembled skewers.
