Strawberry and pineapple kebabs with chocolate sauce
Makes 8 strawberry and pineapple kebabs
- 8 small wooden skewers
- 1 punnet strawberries, hulled
- 1 cup freshly chopped pineapple pieces
- 1/2 cup demerara sugar
For the sauce:
- 200g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- 150ml cream
Soak the skewers in a bowl of water for 30 minutes (so they don’t burn during cooking). Preheat the grill and line a tray with baking paper. Thread the fruit onto your skewers and sprinkle liberally with sugar.
Meanwhile, place the cream in a saucepan on medium heat. Once it reaches boiling point, remove from heat and mix through the chocolate pieces. Stir until smooth and completely melted and transfer to a bowl.
Place the tray of kebabs under your hot grill and cook for a few minutes on each side, until the fruit is blistering and hot. Serve warm with the chocolate sauce.
- Add in a few vanilla and strawberry marshmallows between the fruit pieces for something extra special.
- Sliced peaches are also delicious on these skewers.
