chocolate fruits fondue

cant afford ridiculously priced fondue sessions ?? well, make it yourself then !!

all you need is any fruits of your choice... except maybe durian-lah !! but if you wanna try, go ahead !!

# tips- soak fruits that brown easily with lemon juice to prevent them from browning fast ;-)

kiutsy lil mandarin oranges

pears and red apples


mango tango

going banana over bananas

carrerful fruit platter

next, using only the finest chocolate couverture (my sis works in a choc company, remember ??) ...

wait for choc to melt... and wait... and wait... and wait... (actually it melts pretty fast)

smooth fine chocolate dip
(p/s: the device is a real fondue device by mistral)

a *snap* before we attack !!

yumm... yummz ;-)

of all the fruits, bananas compliment the choc most !! so if you're planning to do this at home, buy more bananas yah !!

oh yeah, you cant just melt the chocolate by direct heat... it has to be double-boiled :)

I oso wanna eat fondue!! Darn...too far from civilisation...missing Haagen Dazs so bad now. Know what you're missing? Strawberries...greatest accompaniment for chocolate, IMHO

I think choc goes best with bananas and strawberries. Do they have dark choc as well? I love dark choc. Wonder anyone has done dark choc fondue before. Does your sis have dark choc for fondue?

waikeat: our booth will be at the space opposite grocer village. the old wing. if only you're here, i will make you come and buy !! HAHA.

kahyee: HAHA. initially we wanted to buy ice cream and make them like the Haagen Dazs ice cream balls fondue. strawberries!! yeah, but couldnt find that at pasar tani... if my mom sees this, she'll think we're living the lives of kings ;-p

calvin: yeap, we mixed dark and milk choc in our fondue. dark choc ur fav !! ;-)
