I plan on having fruit bouquets as centerpieces at my wedding, and I'm not paying the huge prices charged by Edible Arrangements, so I decided to make my own.  I needed to practice first.  This one is certainly not perfect, but I know what to do (and not to do) for next time, and it tastes delicious!

I used apples dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peanut butter granola bars, strawberries (some dipped in chocolate, others plain), red and green grapes, and pineapple.  I stuck the skewers in styrofoam, but next time I think I'll put them in heads of lettuce so there's no white showing through.  I'll also use my chocolate fountain and thin the chocolate so it's not so thick and easier to put on the fruit.

They use Kale as a background to cover anything that would peek through, maybe you could give that a try to cover up the peeking styrofoam (and I think it'll last much longer outside of the fridge than lettuce will).

Oh, and chocolate covered banana chunks are to die for. Well worth the effort!

If I were making some of these I would probably put forth the extra effort and use both brown and white chocolates. There's just something so appealing about the contrast. Or even drizzle a bit of white on top of some of the brown dipped items. However this is for one or two, not for a ton of centerpieces, so I understand any desire for simplicity Smiley

Great job, now you've made me want to make some too Smiley

Great job on your first try!
Just a suggestion: might wanna consider nut allergic folks and nix the peanuts and such.

It looks great!  How long did it take you to make and how many do you have to make for your wedding?
