Strawberry Fruit Sticks

Strawberry Fruit Sticks

This recipe came about because my wife was invited to a baby shower last weekend. Everyone was asked to bring a plate so rather than the same old boring salads or cakes I decided to try out a modified version of a recipe that I’d seen in the ABCs Delicious Summer Recipe book.  After all, at least in my experience, chocolate and a pregnant woman usually seem to go pretty much hand in hand.

24 Strawberries
100g Pistachio Nuts
100g Macadamia Nuts
150g Dark Chocolate
24 bamboo skewers


Skewer the strawberries

Prepare the strawberries by sticking a skewer into each of them at the stem end. Do not push it all the way through.

Prepare the nuts. Chop them until they are all a reasonably uniform size. You can do this using either a large knife or a small canister blender.

Melt the chocolate

Melt the chocolate.

Details on the methods you can use to do this can be found on our How to Melt Chocolate page.

To put it all together, repeat this process for each strawberry.

Hold the stick and dip the strawberry into the chocolate.

Dip the strawberry
Roll the strawberry in the nuts

Roll the chocolate dipped strawberry in the nuts so that they evenly coated.

Set the strawberry aside to cool on a plate lined with baking paper.

As soon as they are cool they are ready to serve or can be refrigerated for later use.

Note: If you have any leftover chocolate and nuts, I like to make my own sort of chocolate bar so as to not let them go to waste.

Simply mix the remaining nuts into the chocolate and mix it up.

Once the nuts are completely mixed in, spread the chocolate out on a piece of baking paper and leave it to cool.

Once it is solid, use a sharp knife to slice the chocolate into bars or squares if you like.

That’s it; you won't win any prizes for presentation but it's ready to eat instantly and tastes great.

Final Thought: For myself, I don’t think this recipe really needs the sticks. I have left them in because they were in the recipe from the ABC’s Delicious Summer cook book but the strawberries coated in chocolate and nuts would stand on their own if you ask me.

This is especially true if kids will be eating them, sharp skewers and small children, not a good combination.

Is it worth keeping the sticks? What do you think? Post a comment and let us know.
