Method

 
1. Grill fruit slices on a hot grill, turning occasionally to prevent burning. Remove and arrange on a platter.
2.To make rum sauce: Heat sugar, rum and butter in a small saucepan over a moderate heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat and spoon over grilled fruits.
3. For fondue: Place all ingredients except granadilla and walnuts in a heat-proof bowl set above a saucepan of gently simmering water. (Ensure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water or the chocolate may become grainy.) Leave it there for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until chocolate has melted and the sauce is smooth. Remove pan from heat, pour fondue into a small bowl and keep warm.
4. To serve: Drizzle granadilla pulp over grilled fruits and arrange slices on a platter, together with bowl of chocolate fondue. Place chopped walnuts in a small bowl and serve alongside fruit.
5. To eat: Dip fruit into fondue, then into crushed nuts and pop straight into your mouth!
