Fruit makes for a delicious dessert. Sometimes. But more often than not, a big bowl of fruit just doesn’t satisfy a sweet tooth. The easiest way to dress it up? Chocolate, duh.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to douse it and completely eliminate the health value—a drizzle will do the trick. In this recipe, we also opted to pop the fruit onto skewers to make this a refreshing party-friendly treat. The whole thing only takes 10 minutes from start to finish.
