When I am thinking about Valentine treats the very first thing that pops into my head is chocolate and strawberries. When those two are put together, there really isn’t much more I need (other than my Valentine of course).
This simple take on strawberries takes a different direction from the always appreciated chocolate covered strawberries. Instead of having the strawberries take the chocolate plunge, it was fun to tweak this treat a little and offer a different kind of Valentines treat.
I chose to serve two different assembly options. The first I created a few kabobs alternating between marshmallows, cake bites, and strawberries. Second option was a build-it-yourself buffet. Both options were a huge crowd pleaser in my house!
Strawberries aren’t quiet in season yet so you probably aren’t gong to find them at an all time low price. But as the lovely holiday gets closer, keep your eyes open for sales. I found these for two pounds for $2.50, not too bad and they did have a great flavor!
All you need:
Cake bites / donuts
Decide on which assembly process you would like to offer your valentine and proceed as needed. I think this recipe is pretty self-explanatory but all I did to make the kabobs was alternate on which ingredients I placed on the skewers. Then once they were all put together I melted just a little chocolate to drizzle over the top.
I did make my cake bites from scratch using my cake pop maker. But if you don’t have one of those you could easily cut pieces of angel food cake or pound cake to use. Another option would be to use donut holes. All are tasty alternatives! Enjoy!

Hello from Merry Monday! These strawberry kabobs look so festive for Valentines. I think they would even make a great classroom party idea. Is there a certain brand that makes the chocolate cake bites?
Brittany CooperFebruary 4, 2015 at 7:49 am
Thanks Maren! I actually just made the cake bites from scratch with a cake pop maker. But I think some donut holes would be a great alternative! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Brittany! These are SO cute and they would be absolutely perfect for my kids’ Valentine’s Day party at school. Everyone loves foods on a stick — especially when there’s chocolate involved. 🙂 Pinned!
