Traffic light fruit kebabs with chocolate dipping sauce

Suitable from 12 months. Makes two portions (six kebabs)



For the fruit kebabs:

2 oranges

6 strawberries

1 kiwi fruit

For the dipping sauce:

150g plain chocolate

1 tbsp sunflower oil

2 tsps orange juice 



  • Step 1

    Cut one orange in half to create the two bases for your kebabs, then gently squeeze some of the juice into a cup, taking care not to damage the shape of the orange halves. Set the juice aside to be used in the dip.

  • Step 2

    Chop up the remaining fruit, peeling and de-seeding if necessary.

  • Step 3

    Thread the chunks of fruit onto six mini bamboo skewers (about 12cm in length), using the green fruit first, followed by the orange and then red. 

  • Step 4

    Place each orange half on a plate, cut side down, and stick three ‘traffic lights’ into each half.

  • Step 5

    Break the chocolate into chunks and place in a glass bowl. Heat up a small pan of boiling water then bring it to a simmer and place the bowl over the pan, stirring until the chocolate has melted. Take care not to get water in the melted chocolate mixture.

  • Step 6

    Add the sunflower oil and orange juice, then stir gently. The oil will keep the sauce runnier for longer once it’s cooled down.

  • Step 7

      Spoon the dip into individual pots.
