Place all the fondue ingredients in a flameproof pot and heat gently, stirring until melted.
Keep warm, if necessary, at the side of the barbecue (but not directly over the coals or it might burn).

When ready to serve, make sure the fondue is hot, then bring to the table and serve with forks to dip the fruits into the chocolate.
Dip shortbread fingers in last to scoop up the dregs.
