Lovely! I have to admit, I wanted to use this as an ice cream topping rather than as fondue (didn't have any good dippers in the house, lol). The Amarula gives this a nice little kick. Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7.

Lainey girl you have a real keeper here. This is not only uber delicious it so easy to make that you don't need to think twice before starting a batch. I had some lovely fresh fruit and we were very happy dippers. You could dip anything in this and it would taste like a million dollars. I'm currently thinking of using the remaining amount as very edible body paint, woohoo! Made for ZWT7 for Team Witchin Kitchen.
