My sister's 20th birthday was yesterday. She has moved in with me and my 3 kids while my husband is deployed to iraq for 7 months.
I wanted to get her a little something for her birthday, but since she is really trying to be healthy while out here, I didn't go the birthday cake route. I looked online to order from Edible Arrangements and was SHOCKED at how outrageously expensive their fruit bouquets were!!!
I decided to make my own version. I had some fresh pineapple, strawberries and bananas on hand, so I used those to dip in milk chocolate. I didn't make them into a bouquet, but just arranged them in a bowl. I sprinkled coconut and sprinkles over the strawberries just after dipping them to add a little flare!!!
They were delicious and much healthier than birthday cake....because fruit cancels out the chocolate, right?!
