Can You Make Fruit Kabobs A Day Ahead?

Because of the fruit used in this recipe, yes you can make your fruit kabobs the day before. Just make your fruit skewers and wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge until you are ready to serve it up! The marshmallows will get a little hard but as they drop back down to room temperature they will soften up. 

Can You Cut Up Fruit The Night Before?

If you are using fruit that isn’t meant for this recipe, some fruit can’t be cut up the night before. Bananas are one fruit that will brown as the air hits it. If you use blackberries or raspberries, you want to rinse right before serving, as they will soften up as they sit.

Do You Soak Wooden Skewers in Water For Fruit Kabobs?

No, you do not need to soak your wooden skewers in water for fruit kabobs. Your skewers get soaked in water for when you are using them on the grill. It keeps them from burning up as they cook. Since you are not grilling your skewers you do not need to soak them.
