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.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
