Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

I found this recipe at Food.com and thought it would be a great dish to take to picnics this summer. I'm going to make a couple of  changes to the original recipe. It calls for donut holes to be used but I'm going to substitue pound cake!!I also will use milk chocolate chips.

Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs

Picture from Food.Com
12 medium fresh strawberries, stems removed
12 doughnut holes
6 (8 inch) wooden skewers
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons margarine 
1/4 cup white vanilla chips
2 teaspoons margarine

Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. Alternately thread 2 strawberries and 2 doughnut holes on each skewer.  You can  use the microwave for the following steps to melt the chocolate/margarine, but use lower heat and watch carefully to avoid burning. Only need to microwave about 1 minute or less and check throughout, stopping when just melted. Drizzle over kabobs  In another bowl, combine vanilla chips and remaining 2 teaspons margarine; microwave until just melted, stirring until smooth and well blended. Drizzle over kabobs and chocolate. Refrigerate 10 minutes or until set.
