Check the cooking tips for melting chocolate. Remember not to over-stir the chocolate as it melts for your chocolate fondue, particularly for white chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 100g of plain chocolate chopped up
  • 100g white chocolate chopped up
  • 100g milk chocolate chopped up
  • 9 tablespoons of double cream
  • 1 tablespoon of Barcardi rum or Grand Marnier (optional)

To serve, use any or all of the following fruits, - they are all great for a chocolate fondue.

Adjust amounts depending on the number you are catering for; this is enough for between four and six adults.

1 small pineapple, 2 medium bananas, 125g of strawberries, 125g cherries, 2 medium pears.

Use a fondue set, small saucepans or heatproof bowls.

Put each type of chocolate into small, heatproof bowls. If you are using the double pan method to melt the chocolate, place the bowl over the steaming saucepan of water. Do not let the bowl touch the water. See the precise instructions for this, or the microwave method of melting chocolate.

Put the cream into a separate pan and bring to the boil. Add 3 tablespoons of the hot cream into each of the melted chocolate bowls, and mix in gently. Add the chosen rum or Grand Mariner into the white chocolate one, and mix.

Place the three separate warmed bowls over the lowest possible heat on a warming tray. Prepare the fruit at the table and immediately dip into the different fondue mixtures, and eat and enjoy, before anyone else does!
