- 8 fluid oz heavy cream
- 12 oz good-quality dark or milk chocolate
- a flavoring (see instructions)
- enough bite-sized fruit and/or desserts for dippin’ for 4 people
In a pot, add your cream and place over medium heat. Stir your cream and gently bring to just barely a boil. Add your chocolate and stir until mixed. Add your flavorings and place your fondue in your fondue pot with a burner or candle underneath to keep your chocolate warm.
If the chocolate fondue starts thickening, you can add a 1 tsp. of heavy cream and stir well to keep the chocolate thin and stretch it out.
Options for Flavorings:
2 teaspoons of Grand Marnier or favorite liqueur
1 pinch of Chipotle chili powder for a kick
1 pinch of espresso, 1 tsp. of vanilla and 2 Tbsp. of finely-chopped hazelnuts
2 Tbsp. marshmallow fluff with 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
Your plate of treats can really be anything that goes well with chocolate and can be speared by a fondue stick. Get creative and have fun. Rice Crispy treats, pound cake cut into small squares, marshmallows, strawberries and bananas are all good choices.
