Simple, healthy, and lovely dessert from Top Tour of Spain site posted for ZWT5. Thank you Linda.P chef#1844617 from Top Tour of Spain site for clarifying the brown sugar and cream amounts. Feel free to use whatever fruit you have on hand. Notice how you can grill it outside or under your broiler. No time was given for how long to grill it so think it might be 2 minutes?

Hi, I'm Linda from the website, where this recipe originated! Seems some were confused about what "a little brown sugar" and "1 glass of single cream" meant. Thought I'd better clarify! Personally, I use a good teaspoon of brown sugar for each brochette - though this is personal taste. I use a small glass of single cream - this would probably be a little more than an eighth of a cup (depends on the size of the cup!). And, I leave it under the grill until the sugar has coloured/burnt slightly. Hope this clarifies things a bit, though it's not a recipe where exact quantities are needed - you mix and match to suit yourself and what you have in the cupboard. All the best, Linda.

These were really tasty and a great change from plain fruit. That being said, the DH prefers his fruit cold. I will make these again, but only grill half of them :D Made for ZWT5.

Hola and thanks for giving me a different and tasty treat for lunch yesterday. I followed the recipe apart from leaving out the single cream. I enjoyed it a great deal and in particular the mix of very healthy with just that little bit of naughty in the chocolate. I am of two minds of if I liked it better before or after heating but both were yummy. Made for Chow Hounds on ZWT5.
