Grilled Pineapple and Strawberry Kebabs with a Chocolate Drizzle

 

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5-10 minutes
Serves: 2-4 people
Recommended Pellets: Pecan, Apple, or Cherry

INGREDIENTS:
Half of a fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
1 lb fresh strawberries, tops removed
8-12 large marshmallows
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
4-6 large bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 2-4 hours before grilling)

PREPARATION:

When ready to grill, start the Traeger Grill on Smoke with the lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid and turn the temperature to High. Allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, thread your fruit and marshmallows onto your skewers in an alternating pattern.

Fill a large oven safe bowl with about an inch of warm water. Fill a smaller bowl with the chocolate chips and place in the water. 

When ready to cook, lay the skewers and the bowls with the chocolate on the grill. Close the lid and cook for 2-4 minutes until the marshmallows start to puff up on one side and the chocolate chips start to melt.

Turn the skewers over and stir your chocolate.

Grill for 2-4 more minutes until marshmallows are toasty all over and chocolate is fully melted. Transfer the grilled skewers to a large platter and, using a fork, drizzle the melted chocolate directly over the fruit and marshmallows. Serve warm.
