Brie and Prosciutto Appetizer Skewers
These skewers are customizable to your favorite flavors, ready in minutes and can be made in advance which, in my opinion, is the key to a successful party.

- Figs would also be delicious when in season!
- Melon too, like cantaloupe balls!

Brie and prosciutto are so delicious with so many different fruits! That touch of sweetness pairs so well with the salty prosciutto and creamy brie.

How to Make Brie and Prosciutto Skewers
Find the full recipe and instructions at the end of the post, but below is a quick little guide to how I made these appetizer skewers.
Making these brie, prosciutto and fruit skewers is super simple! It’s just a matter or layering everything on your wooden skewer. I suggest a 4″ or 5″ wooden skewer as I find that’s the perfect length.
- Begin by skewering a grape on an appetizer-sized toothpick
- Fold over 2 arugula leaves (stems removed) and skewer that on after the grape
- Next, add on a piece of brie cheese
- Carefully fold a small piece of prosciutto back and forth and skewer that on
- Lastly, finish with a small piece of green apple
There you have it! This is SUCH an easy brie and prosciutto appetizer for any occasion.
If you want to serve these brie and prosciutto skewers with a sauce, I’d suggest either balsamic glaze or hot honey! You can also serve them as is, they’re delicious either way!
