DIY: Edible Arrangement!

Italy Blog Shots 029Italy Blog Shots 047 After cruising the edible arrangements website dreaming of the best gift ever, my roommate and I decided to make our own. A quick trip to the grocery store and about twelve Euros provided us with hours of fun and a tasty, healthy snack.

This also makes a great gift, especially if you can’t afford the full priced baskets (which go upwards of $100). If  you do make this for a friend, make sure to wear gloves- your hands will be all over the fruit!

DIY Edible Arrangement

Look for ingredients that are easy to put on a stick! We got apples, pineapples, grapes, strawberries, and bananas. (Melons and other types of berries are great, too!)

Bamboo sticks are the best, perfect for dipping fruit in chocolate!

We melted milk free, sugar free chocolate for dipping. Even though the chocolate wasn’t sweet at all, the sweetness in the fruit balanced out for wonderful flavor. This was so easy… the hardest part was not eating all of the chocolate dipped fruit before finishing the arrangement!
