  • 1 bag white chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Prepare the Cake:

  2. Prepare the Strawberries:
    • While the cake is baking, cut the stems off the strawberries and halve them if necessary to create uniform sizes.
  3. Cut the Cake:
    • Once the cake has cooled, cut it into 2-inch cubes.
  4. Assemble the Kabobs:
    • Take the skewers and alternate between strawberries and shortcake cubes. Aim for three or four pieces of each per skewer.
  5. Melt the Chocolate:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave for about two minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until fully melted.
    • Transfer the melted chocolate into a large plastic bag and cut off the corner tip.
  6. Drizzle with Chocolate:
    • Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the assembled kabobs.
  7. Set and Serve:
    • Place the kabobs in the refrigerator to set the chocolate. Serve chilled.

Notes:

  • Uniform Sizes: Ensure strawberries and cake pieces are roughly the same size for even skewering and presentation.
  • Extra Flavor: Add a drizzle of dark chocolate or a sprinkle of powdered sugar for extra flavor and decoration.
  • Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
