Cut mango along the seed. Make two pieces with skin on
Cut flesh into squares 20x20mm. Do not cut into skin
Press on skin to make the mango square pop up
Use only high quality dark cooking chocolate 60% or more
Did you know that chocolate comes from cocoa, which comes from the beans of the cacao tree?
Break chocolate into pieces
If your mum and dad are helping you tell them to keep their fingers off the chocolate
Create a bain marie (A bain-marie is a water bath. It is a type of heated bath and the chocolate is heated gently and gradually to fixed temperatures).
Put water in a pot. Place a stainless steel bowl resting on top of the pot like a lid would do. Put chocolate pieces in bowl and bring water to simmer. When the chocolate is melted you can start covering the mangoes.
Put each mango square on a skewer and with a tablespoon you pour chocolate over the mango. Make sure you hold the mango over the bowl or you will drop a lot of chocolate on the carpet. Next thing Rudi the Rooster will be scratching the carpet and send chocolate flying and shit will hit the fan.
Let excess chocolate drip into bowl. When finished dripping place the chocolate covered mango on a piece of baking paper on a plate. Place in fridge to harden the chocolate.
Eat when you fell like it.
Happy cooking kids
