Hi, I'm Linda from the http://www.top-tour-of-spain.com 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.
This was a wonderful breakfast this morning. Would also be great as a dessert. I used banana, pears, apples, oranges and banana. I forgot to sprinkle them with brown sugar, but didn't miss it. I really enjoyed dipping the strawberries and bananas in the chocolate and liked the oranges and apples but didn't care for the pears with it. Thanks for sharing WiGal!! Made for ZWT Spain's kid friendly recipe.
omitted pears but was very good./ served with icecream
This recipe is a bit like a healthy chocolate fondue. I wasn't too keen on the combination of fruit or the fact that it was warm. I think if I was to make this again I would skip the sugar, and substitute the pear and orange for strawberries and more banana and not grill it. Made for ZWT5 Round 1 Vive Valencia Challenge
