Feeling fancy? Top with chopped dill and chives.
Devils on Horseback
Yep, this surprisingly delicious 70s fave can come in at under 100 calories per piece! Simply wrap a small, pitted date or prune with a small sliver of prosciutto (trim the fat off), skewer with a toothpick and bake in a hot oven until golden.
Fruit kebabs with chocolate drizzle
Alternate sliced banana, halved strawberries, melon and watermelon cubes on a large skewer. Place on a large tray, and drizzle with melted dark chocolate. Pop in the fridge until hard.
Cut half a banana into 3 to 4 thick slices, and skewer each slice with a toothpick. Dip the lower half into some melted dark chocolate (minimum 80% cocoa solids). Freeze until the chocolate has hardened.
