  • 400 ml double cream
  • 0.5 tsp chilli powder
  • 0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 oranges, grated zest
  • 400 g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids chopped into small pieces
  • 100 ml champagne, or sparkling wine


1. Place the cream, chilli, cinnamon, and orange zest in a heavy-based medium saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring often. 2. Add the dark chocolate pieces and whisk well until smooth and glossy. Add the champagne and mix well. 3. Pour into a decorative serving bowl and place on a large dinner plate or round tray. 4. To serve, thread a selection of brownies (cut into 2cm cubes), strawberries, marshmallows, mini-muffins and an assortment of colourful fruit (kiwis, pineapple or papaya) onto skewers or cocktail sticks. Arrange these fruit skewers around the fondue pot - for an added flourish, sprinkle with rose petals for decoration.
