Melt white and dark chocolate separately in double- boilers. Pour each into a freezer bag and cut a very tiny corner from each bag. Pipe decorative spirals of white and dark chocolate onto dessert plates and chill in refrigerator.
Peel grapefruit, oranges and mandarins, removing white pith. Separate into segments and place on a platter.
Mix lemon juice, lime juice, orange liqueur and maple syrup or honey. Pour over fruit, cover and marinate 30 minutes in refrigerator for flavours to develop.
Arrange fruit on prepared dessert plates and dust with icing sugar. Top with peel, and serve while still well chilled.
