Method

  1. Use a knife to peel the skin off the mango lengthways as thinly as possible. Cut the flesh away from the large stone in centre and cut into 1.5 cm pieces.
  2. Thread the mango, strawberries, banana and pineapple pieces onto skewers, alternating the ingredients as you go.
  3. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a small pan of simmering water. Stir the chocolate as it begins to melt. Once it is fully melted and smooth, add 100ml of hot water from the pan and whisk until the chocolate sauce has a smooth and glossy consistency. If the sauce looks like it's becoming lumpy, put the bowl back onto the pan over a medium heat and continue to whisk until it becomes the desired consistency.
  4. Drizzle the chocolate over the fruit skewers and serve immediately.
