  6. When the chocolate has hardened, add your whipped topping and a cherry to the top.

  2. Add in fruit options, such as strawberries, raspberries, and banana bites. 
  3. Add 5-6 pieces to your sticks, alternating between dessert items and fruit. Once you have your skewer, drizzle frosting over it and add a few sprinkles.
