INGREDIENTS

FOR THE POT OF MELTED CHOCOLATE:

  • 2 cups/473 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 10 ounces/300 g good quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • One 1-pound/454-g basket fresh strawberries with stems, halved lengthwise
  • One 6-ounce/170-g basket fresh blackberries
  • One 6-ounce/170-g basket fresh raspberries
  • 2 bananas, peeled and cut crosswise into thick rounds
  • 4 almond biscotti

PREPARATION:

  1. Place the chocolate in a bowl and set the bowl of chocolate over a saucepan of barely simmering water and stir until the chocolate melts. Heat the cream in a small attractive sauce pan over a medium heat until it begins to simmer. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add the melted chocolate to the cream and stir until the mixture is well blended and smooth. Arrange the fruit and biscotti on a platter and serve with the pot of chocolate, allowing diners to skewer the fruit with a fork and dip the fruit and biscotti into the melted chocolate.
