Perfect perfect perfect fondue! I loved the hint of hazelnut from the syrup and the tastiness of the caramel too. This makes such a smooth fondue. I used it with the kids as a special dessert treat and we dipped, bananas, marshmallows, pineapple chunks and some pound cake cubes too. Just great! Thanks for sharing during ZWT7.

Made this for Valentine's Day and it was awesome! After reading the reviews here, I decided to use vanilla extract that I already had rather than buying a liqueur. I also chose to use about 10 ounces of milk chocolate and 6 ounces of dark chocolate. The result was delicious! My husband and I both adored it. I served it with homemade Rice Krispy treats, banana slices, apple slices, and of course, strawberries.

One more note -- we do not own a fondue pot, so I just used a crock pot on low and continued to stir the ingredients until the chocolate melted (took less than 10 minutes) and it worked great!

This was a hit on Valentine's day and the day after! I used Callebaut semisweet chocolate, natural caramel sauce and amaretto. The texture was amazingly smooth and rich! We had such a wonderful dinner on Valentine's we didn't have room to finish this off so I shared it the next night with some friends and their kids and everyone loved it!
