  1. Cut large fruits into chunks, if necessary, then put all the fruit in a bowl or on a large platter.
  2. Break the chocolate into pieces, and put it in a bowl set over a pan of hot, but not boiling, water. Leave it to melt.
  3. Keep the chocolate hot in a fondue pot or over a tealight while the children are dipping fruit into it.
  4. Don't leave the children unattended while the flame is lit.
  • Choose your children's favorite fruit for this fondue-apples, pears, grapes, strawberries, peaches, tangerine segments, chunks of pineapple, bananas, melon-and use organic chocolate, if possible. Have plenty of wooden skewers handy for dipping the fruit into the chocolate.
