Food On Sticks

From s'mores to kebabs, food's better when it's on a stick 

                                                 Corn dog

Grilling the hot dog before battering in a buttermilk-cornmeal batter: one ticket to the smoky corn dog jackpot

                                          Summer Berry-Coconut Milk Ice Pops 

You've never had an icy treat like this. Fresh berries make a unique swirl in these coconut milk and cardamom pops. 

                                   Lamb Kebabs with Mint Pesto 

When the heat gets high, you bring the lamb and cooling mint. 

                                    Chicken-Apricot Skewers 

You haven't had a skewer until you've had one of these creamy peanut-marinated chicken and apricot skewers 

                                     Steak Skewers with Scallion Dipping Sauce 

While we never met a steak we didn't like, these coconut milk-marinated kebabs are best with tr-tip, top sirloin cap steak, or rib eye.

 Grilled Shrimp and Sausage Skewers with Smoky Paprika Glaze 

Tapas, meet the skewer. 

These sherry-rich shrimp and sausage skewers get a healthy hit of spicy paprika that makes them even harder to put down. 

                                   Glazed Japanese Chicken Meatballs on Skewers

These sweet-and-savory ground chicken skewers change the game for ground chicken everywhere.

                                             Frozen Lemon Pie Pops 

Forget making a pie crust—these lemon pie pops are so much better.

                                  Tamarind "Teriyaki" Chicken Skewers

Here's a low-sodium fix with a high return: Use tamarind paste in the place of salty teriyaki sauces. You'll find the flavor is just as good.

                                  Skewered Strawberry & Marshmallow S'mores

When you can't decide between strawberries and chocolate or s'mores, a stick can bring you both. 

                                  Frozen Chocolate-Dipped Bananas with Peanut Brittle 

There's always money in these gorgeous frozen bananas with DIY peanut brittle. 
Who needs ice cream when you have banana on a stick?

Make your salsa pucker with this Meyer lemon mix-in. It'll make the chicken that much better. - 
                                   Chicken and Scallion Skewers 

Move over sushi, this seared yakitori skewer is Japanese, done much easier 

                    Turkish-Spiced Chicken Kebabs with Pomegranate Relish and Tahini Yogurt 

If you haven't tried it yet, baharat, a mixture of cumin, oregano, and dried mint needs to be in your spice pantry. 

Its smoky heat is just right on these chicken and pomegranate skewers. 

                                      Frozen Fudge Pops 

The childhood favorite doesn't need to grow up. Smooth and deeply chocolatey, they're great just the way they are.
