A delicious chocolate fondue makes the perfect dinner party dessert.
- 12 oz semi-sweet, bittersweet or milk chocolate
- ¾ cup 35% cream
- 2 tbsp liqueur (like Grand Marnier or amaretto)
1 Chop the chocolate into small pieces using a large serrated knife.
2 Heat the cream and the chocolate together in a stainless-steel pot over low heat, stirring constantly until melted and smooth.
3 When the chocolate fondue is warm and glossy, stir in the liqueur and transfer to a fondue pot placed over the warming candle or heat source.
4 Arrange a platter with interesting dippers cut into pieces that are easy to pop into the mouth. Good fresh fruit options are strawberries, banana slices, cubes of apple and pear, and chunks of fresh pineapple, but also try dried fruit like figs, apricots and peaches.
5 Cubes of angel food cake or pound cake, biscotti, ladyfingers, marshmallows and macaroons are good choices, too.
