1 Line a rimmed baking pan with parchment paper. Place grapes, pineapple pieces, and strawberries in single layer on prepared pan. Heat dark chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl in microwave oven on high for 1 minute 20 seconds, or until melted, stirring every 20 seconds. Stir in oil. Drizzle fruit with chocolate mixture; sprinkle with coconut and refrigerate 20 minutes or until chocolate is hardened.
2 To make the Cranberry-Ginger Dip, heat white chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl in microwave oven on high for 1 minute 20 seconds, or until melted, stirring every 20 seconds. Whisk in yogurt, banana, cranberries, and ginger.
3 Wrap cone in aluminum foil. Using a 3" star-shaped cookie cutter, cut a star from pineapple cross section; thread star onto skewer. Insert toothpicks into cone to create “Christmas tree branches.” Then, carefully thread grapes, strawberries, and pineapple pieces onto toothpick “branches.” Insert pineapple star onto top of “tree.”
