Almost anything tastes better dipped in chocolate. Use your imagination and offer cubes of your favorite cake and sliced fruit for dipping. You could even include small chocolate chip, shortbread, peanut butter or oreo cookies which can be dipped directly into the fondue without using a fondue fork.
1/2 cup whipping cream
5 tablespoons (about) water
12 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, chopped
