Chocolate River

.. well not quite but as this week we are off to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory we decided to recreate the chocolate river in the form of a fondue which the girls thought was fab!

We followed this recipe:

  • 110g sugar
  • 110ml water
  • 400g plain chocolate, broken in pieces
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • selection of fruits cut in bite-sized pieces such as apple, pineapple and strawberries and some marshmallows
  1. Heat the sugar and water in a saucepan until the sugar melts and the mixture resembles a syrup.
  2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave
  3. Stir in the golden syrup and enough sugar syrup to form a smooth sauce. (Caution: the chocolate mixture will be very hot, allow to cool a little before serving.)

    Then the children, armed with fondue forks dipped and generally made a mess and had fun!
