I love sweet tasting fruits. Even tart ones I enjoy. I love them cubed up, pressed down into juices (not into jam strangely enough) or just simply cut up into pieces. I simply enjoy fruit. But what’s better than just fruit? Fruit with toppings, yum. I don’t mean any old toppings though.
For example, fruit with heavy syrup or creams do not do it for me. They taste too candy like and it irks me almost as bad as anything with ‘sweet and sour’ in its name. Fruit mixed with jello also bugs me. I like jello separately from fruit but the two together…no.
And don’t get me started on nuts or chewy things being thrown together with fruits.
Yes, I’m a picky eater. But funny enough, chocolate tends to skip by my aversion to super sweet things or sour things or even chewy things into something I enjoy. I like the strange mix of all of those that you get with chocolate. I like the blend of flavors that seem to just work and even accentuate both fruit and chocolate. I also like that chocolate lends itself easily to being a dipping sauce and or garnishment to fruit. Also, have you ever seen chocolate and fruit ever look unappetizing? I sure haven’t.
And adding on drizzles of white chocolate with the dark chocolate? Awesome sauce (literally). I suggest you get one of those pots, the ones where you can dip meat in with oil and use chocolate instead. Having a platter of fruit + skewers + pot of hot melted chocolate + friends = fun times.
