Deconstructed Fruits Chocolate

Chocolate comes from Cocoa,

which is a tree

That makes it a plant.

Chocolate is a salad!

Hahahahaha πŸ˜€ Yes.. most of us pounce upon chocolates as if they are salad and it is a must have in our daily diet… We always want to avoid the fact that chocolate do add to the calories. Isn’t it? But what if someone tells us – Chocolates can be healthy too? πŸ™‚ Believing on the same fact, presenting my Deconstructed Fruits Chocolate prepared using dark choco compound, loads of dry fruits, exclusive summer fruits and cocoa powder.


Let’s have a look at the recipe –

Makes: 16 cups

Preparation time: 5 mins

Serving time: 2 hours



  • 1.5 cup butter
  • 1.5 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 Dark chocolate compound ( I used Morde)
  • 1 cup dry fruits ( Almonds, Cashews, Pistas) – Roasted and grinded
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped / grated summer fruits ( Cherries and Plums)
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • Sprinklers for decorations


  • Melt butter in a pan on low heat.
  • Add cream and let it simmer for 1 min. It should not be boiled rather simply heated.
  • Close the gas. Now make small chunks of your chocolate compound and keep it in a bowl.
  • Pour butter cream mixture over the same and let the chocolate compound melt gradually. Keep stirring.
  • Once a smooth mixture is attained, add dry fruits and mix well.
  • Now add summer fruits. Mix well again.
  • Pour the mixture into a baking tin. ( I used loaf tin)
  • Cover it with transparent sheet and let it rest in the fridge for at least 1.5 hours.
  • Now, after 2 hours take it out and scoop it into tiny moulds. Mixture will be bit runny.
  • Plate it nicely using cocoa powder and cherries.
  • You may also sprinkle some grated fruit skins for more divine looks.
  • Keep it in fridge for another 15 mins.
  • Deconstructed Fruits Chocolate is ready to be served! πŸ™‚
