This is an unusual recipe, looks great, and tastes delicious.

Chocolate covered sponge fingers, with a cream cheese mixture in the middle, stuck together with the melted chocolate!

You could put any fruit on the top and I have eaten it one day with pineapple and nectarine, and the next with just kiwi fruit.

With kiwi fruit only


I always use Lindt 70% chocolate in cooking as the finished product is as good as the quality of the chocolate in cooking.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
6 sponge fingers
100 g dark chocolate
220 g Philadelphia spreadable Light cream cheese
cup icing sugar, sifted (or a bit less)
1 tsp vanilla
Fresh fruit for serving e.g. fresh berries, mango, peaches, kiwi etc

Method
Cut the sponge fingers in half lengthways

Break up the chocolate ready to melt -I always do this in the microwave.

Dip the sponge finger ends into the chocolate and coat well. Place on a lined tray or dish and form a triangular shape. Ensure the chocolate ends are overlapping as these will secure the frames once the chocolate has set.

Repeat with remaining biscuits and chocolate to form four triangular frames. I had a few small pieces left over so added these with chocolate to the tops of some.

Allow to set.

Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese with the sifted icing sugar and vanilla.

Once the chocolate is set, arrange the frames on individual plates or on one long plate. Fill the centre of each with a dollop of cream cheese.

Add fruit of your choice, as much or as little as you want, and serve. Fresh pineapple goes very well with it, as it has a slightly tart taste.
