Not quite sure what I did wrong but it was a disaster. Seemed to be far too much butter to chocolate, so it separated and I had throw it all away and start again. Second time round I used much less butter and it was much better.

Delish. We used fruit and also Turkish delight to dip (not the chocolate variety, but the real stuff). We also made mini meringues which had crystallised ginger whipped into them to dip into this. YUM. Definitely (spelled CORRECTLY) will make this again.

I dont use milk or butter but I use a mixture of dark and milk chocolate to make this more 'kid friendly', its a great way to get children to try different fruits.

Iused a 300ml tub double cream but didn't use the butter or milk at all - so less calories ;)
I thought it was a bit thin, so thickened with a level tsp cornflour mixed in a drop of water and carefully heated up...
Bananas are MADE for dipping in this! Great social pud. If you drop your fruit into the bowl you have to run round the house. But be quick or it'll all be gone!!

Great fun for dessert at a dinner party. I also added an array of fresh fruit to dip in to the chocolate or it can get a bit sickly. Grapes, bananas and strawberrys work well.
