Prep Time 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 6 - 8 servings


  • Yogurt-Covered Pretzels
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Cherries


  1. Rinse and dry all your fruit.
  2. Place blueberries in a bowl, and set this in the center of your plate or platter.
  3. Arrange cherries around the perimeter of the bowl.
  4. The next layer will be a circle of yogurt-covered pretzels.
  5. Follow with a larger circle of raspberries.
  6. Finish it off with another circle of yogurt-covered pretzels.


The amount of fruit and/or pretzels you need will depend on the size of the plate or platter you are using. I used a 14" Torte Plate, and used one box of pretzels (about 8 oz.), just under 2 pints of raspberries, one bag of cherries, and two pints of blueberries.
