Feast on this gloriously simple chocolate fondue.


  • 55g/2oz sugar
  • 55ml/7fl oz water

  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • selection of fruits cut in bite-sized pieces such as orange, banana, grapes, dates or pineapple.


  1. Heat the sugar and water in a saucepan until the sugar melts and the mixture resembles a syrup.

  2. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. (Do not lot the base of the bowl touch the water.)

  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.)
