Bittersweet Chocolate Fondue
- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 15m
6 servings (2 cups)
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
Bring cream and 2 tablespoons water to simmer in heavy medium saucepan over
medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low. Add chocolate; whisk until melted and
smooth. Whisk in remaining 3 tablespoons water (or substitute with 3 tablespoons
liqueur of choice; see variations listed below). Transfer to fondue pot and
keep warm over fondue burner. If fondue becomes too thick at any time, mix in
more water by tablespoonfuls as needed.
DIPPERS: 1-inch pieces gingerbread, pound cake or angel food cake, large
marshmallows, fresh strawberries, 1-inch pieces of banana, orange or tangerine
segments, kiwi wedges, pear wedges, assorted dried fruit such as apricots, figs,
apple rings, pineapple rings.
