Add the cream and chocolates to a medium-to-small cast-iron pot and place the pot over medium heat.

As the pot heats up, the cream and chocolate should heat up together and the chocolate will melt. Stir continuously until you have smooth chocolate sauce.

Remove the pot from the fire. As the pot is made from cast iron it will keep its heat and the chocolate sauce will stay warm for a while.

Put marshmallows on skewers, dip them in the chocolate sauce and enjoy.

- Encourage your kids to braai some of the skewered marshmallows by holding the skewer over the flames or coals. Braaing marshmallows will teach your kids the fundamental principles of braaing.

Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
