Kid-Friendly Finger Food: "Traffic Light" Fruit Skewers with Creamy Caramel Dip

Annabel Karmel

Preparation: 10 minutes
Makes: 8 skewers, 4 portions
Not suitable for freezing

You will need:

¼ Galia or other green melon, seeded
½ large mango, peeled, or approximately 5 ounces cut mango
8 medium strawberries, hulled
8 plastic or wooden skewers

For the creamy caramel dip:

¼ cup dulce de leche
4 teaspoons heavy cream

Remove the rind from the melon and cut 8 cubes, each approximately 1 inch. Cut the mango into 8 smaller-size cubes. Thread one cube of melon onto each skewer, followed by a cube of mango and a strawberry.

Mix together the dulce de leche and cream to make the dip, and spoon into small bowls. Serve with the fruit skewers.

Lemon Yogurt Dip Variation

For a tasty alternative dip that is easy to prepare, mix 1/3 cup thick Greek-style yogurt with 2 teaspoons milk, 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar, and 2 tablespoons lemon curd.
