These Adorable ‘No-Bake’ Treats Take Minutes To Prepare!
In honour of Canada Day and Independence Day, I wanted to share this dessert that is perfect for a summer party and doesn’t involve baking in a hot kitchen. These are called Brownie and Fruit Kabobs and they look amazingly tempting on a dessert platter and best of all they’re easy and quick to make. This recipe, as posted on LifeMadeDelicious.ca uses packaged brownies that require baking, but I recommend skipping this step and using store bought mini-brownies. This will cut down your preparation time and also avoid having to use a hot oven. Feel free to get creative with the ingredients. If you’re not a chocolate fan, maybe use marshmallows instead…imagine using strawberries and marshmallows for a patriotic Canada Day look! Have fun making these adorable kabobs and enjoy this festive weekend!
