Chocolate fondue with strawberries and cherries: a romantic treat

This simple dessert is the perfect ending to a romantic meal. You can use whichever fruits you fancy - while strawberries are the traditional choice, cherries and sliced pear also go very well with chocolate. Slices of frozen banana would be another great alternative, or if you're not so big on fruit, try marshmallows.



200g good quality dark chocolate, broken into pieces
1 tbsp golden syrup
Pinch of salt
150ml single cream

Fruit for dipping - I went for strawberries and cherries


This is almost embarassingly easy to make:

Melt your chocolate in a bowl suspended over a pan of simmering water. Add the tablespoon of golden syrup and pinch of salt, then remove from the heat and stir in the single cream.

Serve to someone you love along with a platter of fruit and wooden skewers for dipping.
