Figs are great if you stuff them with bittersweet chocolate ganashe . You poke a home in the bottom with a skewer and pipe in the filling then dip in melted chocolate ..... Out of this world

Also, figs with prosciutto is excellent - just halve (or quarter, depending on size) the figs, arrange on a platter and drape them with very thinly sliced prosciutto.

I have an abundance of fig trees and use them for appetizers as long as the supply lasts and the bluejays leave them alone. They are great to stuff with goat cheese, almonds or walnuts, blue cheese ,or wrap with bacon .

Thanks all! The strawberries are a nice idea. I was going to go with the fruit kabobs, but then I saw figs in the store today! Kinda early, isn't it? Anyway, I am going to serve figs plain, with some goat cheese and honey on the side.

What about chocolate dipped strawberries, Mimi tart shells ( you can buy them pre made in freezer section) filled with berries and cream, fruit kabobs with a yoghurt dip.

I lived in Mexico for many years. A very popular snack food there is jicama, cucumber, pineapple, watermelon, etc. (any one of these or a combination) served with lime juice, tajin powder (a mix of very mild chile, salt, and lime--can be bought at latino markets), and a little salt. It's delicious and very refreshing!

I love having "snack trays" - this is what my family calls them anyway. We serve foods that are mostly uncooked for everyone to graze on all night. Some ideas for a snack tray: Summer fruits like melons, berries, peaches, apricots, and strawberries (these are all abundant at our farmers market currently). Farmers cheese. Olives. Nuts, especially almonds. Pickled asparagus spears or green beans are really nice. Flat bread or pita chips are great. Grilled or fried zucchini squash is delicious this time of year, especially drizzled with reduced balsamic vinegar. I set out all of the food together on large trays and serve with small plates.

Do you grill? Grilled pineapple (sprinkle on a little sugar before grilling) is wonderful.

sorry, here is the rest of the question:
I want to make something sweet, easy to make and easy for guests to eat during game night, fruit-based, minimal baking (I'm not really a baker). Ideas?
