Notes

Be careful not to splash any water into the chocolate in the top of the double boiler or the chocolate will seize and become unusable.

Ingredients

For the kebabs

  • 2 mangos, peeled and cut in1 inch pieces
  • 2 peaches, cut in wedges
  • 1 Cup cherries, pitted
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, cut in 1 inch chunks
  • 2 bananas, peeled and cut in 1 inch chunks

For the chocolate

  • 1 Cup dark chocolate (at least 70% cacao), cut into small pieces

Directions

For the kebabs

Skewer fruit pieces randomly onto six 12 inch skewers.

Place on a clean, medium-high, oiled grill and cook until fruit is soft and caramelized, about 5 minutes on each side.

Using a pot holder or oven glove, remove skewers and place on a large platter.

Drizzle with the Melted Chocolate.

For the chocolate

Place the candy in the top pot of the double boiler and stir until the candy melts and becomes smooth.

 

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
