Braai Dessert: Easy Chocolate Fondue
August 5, 2011 in Uncategorized
I see we are in for another weekend of bitterly cold weather here in KZN, with more snow being possible. I am so ready for summer now, can’t wait for hot weather. I promise not to complain in January, when the temperature is 45°C!!!!
Had hoped to braai tonight, it’s just been too cold lately and I am getting withdrawals, I feel the need to make a big fire and cook some food over it!! I think a whole chicken, pot-roasted in beer over flames would be a very tasty supper, and the fire would keep us warm too.
I’ve been cooking several chicken dishes on the braai lately: for the August issue of Caravan and Outdoor Life, I made Chicken Cacciatore and Coq au Vin over our camp-fire.
I rush to get each issue when it comes out – I love seeing what they have done with my cookery articles and photos!! The layout guy is so talented. I cook one or two savoury dishes and a sweet dish for each issue of the magazine, and the sweet part of the meal for this issue was a chocolate fondue.
That’s right, we put together a camp-fire chocolate fondue the last time we camped. It was so easy and delicious, and such fun – do try this for dessert next time you braai, it gets everyone involved.
As this is camp-fire food, you’ll find the recipe and other tips over on my camp-fire cookery blog at
or just click on one of the photos.
Well, it’s been a hectic month in what is becoming a truly hectic year.
My daughter NJ, had a nasty fall at work, she fell about 2 m and cracked the bone of her right heel, as well as fractured one vertebra, plus assorted bumps and bruises. She has been wearing a back-brace and moon-boot, and hobbling around on crutches, poor girl. It could have been much worse, at least she didn’t need surgery, but it will be a slow recovery. She sees the specialist this morning, hopefully she’s been careful enough to put her well on the way to being healed.
My work-load just doesn’t ease up – can’t believe I started blogging because I was so bored at work…is this the same job???!!!!!! I am so grateful for the long weekend ahead (I am off on Monday). Need to start thinking about what to cook for the next issue of the magazine – all ideas will be considered, good people!
Have an awesome weekend!!!
