Fruit Chunks Dipped in Chocolate

This is a great dessert for an "apératif dinatoire" (cocktail dinner). It's easy and beautiful.

What you need:

Dark chocolate which is low in sugar (10 grams per person)
Speculos (2 per person)
Cream (1/2 teaspoon per person)

What to do:

Cut the fruit into thick chunks (except the strawberries which you leave whole, cutting off the greens)

Melt the chocolate with enough cream to make it smooth on low heat.

Crush the speculos in a shallow bowl.

Poke a toothpick into each chunk of fruit then dip them halfway into the melted chocolate and dip again into the crushed speculos cookies.

Arrange them on a platter and cool in the refrigerator for about half an hour.

If you are following the Weight Watchers program, this counts as only 2 points!
