Ingredients

  • firm-ripe bananas, peeled
  • 2  Tablespoons  orange juice
  • 16  red grapes
  • 16  green grapes
  • 1 1/2  Ounce  60- to 70-percent dark chocolate, chopped finely

Directions

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Cut the banana into ½-inch-thick rounds. Place in a small bowl and toss gently with the orange juice. Skewer the fruit onto eight 10-inch wooden skewers, alternating 2 grapes for each piece of banana, and place the fruit skewers onto the baking sheet.

Place the chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute, then stir well, and microwave another 10 seconds if necessary to melt the chocolate. Using a spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate onto the fruit skewers.

Place the tray in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Once frozen, skewers may be transferred to a sealable plastic bag where they will keep in the freezer for up to a week. Allow to soften at room temperature for 5 minutes before eating.

Grape Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
