Delicious! I served this for New Year's Eve with fresh strawberries (yes, I was shocked to find fragrant and yummy strawberries in December), banana chunks, fresh pineapple chunks and pound cake chunks. There were no leftovers! Next time I will definitely try the orange segments as well, thanks for the intriguing method of placing them in a warm oven to dry out.

Also made this for my New Year's bash. Turned out great! We dunked aniseed biscotti, melon, fresh pineapple, apple chunks, and bananas. Delicious. I let the left over chocolate harden overnight, then rolled them into balls and coated with chopped nuts, grated chocolate, and icing sugar (to make 3 varieties). Made a fabulous selection of little 'truffles'. Thanks Meanie

We made this delicious treat for our New Year's feast dessert. Actually, my 3yo DD made it herself (adult supervision for the flame) stirring the semi-sweet chocolate, milk, and butter to melting in the fondue pot. We helped her with the measuring, and it came out perfectly. Once the chocolate was melted, even at it's lowest flame, the fondue pot kept the chocolate almost at a simmer, so we turned off the flame. We dunked in honey castella cake, fresh strawberries, orange sections, marshmallows, and bananas. The chocolate was the perfect eating temperature and the flavor was excellent. Everyone proclaimed this a winner and must-do again dessert. Thanks for another great recipe!

Loved how simple this recipe was and it tasted great! I used the best chocolate we get here and there were no leftovers! We dipped crystallized ginger, marshmallows, apple, strawberries, graham crackers - all sorts and everything tasted great with it!

I used Lindt dark chocolate 70% cocoa, 1% milk and butter. So easy and so delicious. We dipped pound cake, raspberries, strawberries, bananas and macaroons.

I added peppermint to ours and loved it. I used the electric Velata fondue warmers from http://www.lovefondue.com so didn't have to worry about scorching it with a flame and it kept it at just the right temperature.

So easy to make. I made this in my brand spankin' new electric fondue pot. I doubled the recipe, used 2% milk and butter and the vanilla and semi-sweet Baker's chocolate.
A hit at our dinner and will be making this a staple of our partied from now on!
Great rich chocolate flavor, could easily add a liquer to this recipe. Lots of possibilities!
We dipped raspberries, kiwi, strawberries, bananas, green apples, tangerines (dried a bit like you suggested), Maria cookies (a not very sweet cookie), and drizzled on cake. Very very good!
Thank you!
