and chocolate fondue

and it's all better covered in chocolate...

Valentines dinner

Mandeira Cake

After not that much thought at all really, I decided that a chocolate fondue for dessert would make the perfect end to our Valentines dinner. It's fun, messy and delicious.

  • 300ml of double cream
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier (or other liqueur)
  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • Fruit
  • Marshmallows
  • Madeira cake
  • Lollies
  1. Heat cream in a saucepan over medium heat until almost boiling. Stir in Grand Marnier.
  2. Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Pour hot cream mixture over chocolate. Stir with a metal spoon until melted and smooth. Pour into a warm bowl or small ceramic fondue.
  3. Serve with fruit, marshmallow, cake and lollies.

Other options of things to dip:
Turkish delight
Other cakes, doughnuts, churros
Apricot coconut slice
Crystalised ginger

Fruit you many not think of:
Dates (medjool)
Dried fruit (apricot, figs, apple)

We sat down and enjoyed our dessert while we watched 'The Princess Bride' (my favourite) and Amelie (his favourite).

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day no matter who you were with or what you did.

Until next time.
Love, love Elle.
