Ingredients

Main

  • 4 bananas
  • 1 pineapples, cored and cut into chunks
  • 16 fresh medjool dates, stoned
  • 6 star-fruit, sliced into 16 or substitute with kiwi fruit
  • 16 drops marshmallows
  • 250 g chocolate
  • 125 ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp dark rum

Method

1. Skewer one piece of each fruit onto the skewers finishing with the star fruit and marshmallows. Keep refrigerated until you are ready to serve. 2. Take a piece of florist's foam (from any florists) and place in a medium sized square vase (it should be significantly shallower than the skewers). Cover the top of the foam with banana leaf or kitchen foil. If you are using a glass vase, cover the whole thing with banana leaf or foil. 3. Place the chocolate, cream and rum in a bowl over gently simmering water and stir until melted (or use a fondue). 4. To serve, arrange the skewers in the vase as with a floral arrangement and serve with bowls of the chocolate fondue.
