Colorado Mel's Caramel Rum Fondue

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Colorado Mel

This is a fantastic dessert fondue recipe! It's perfect for the non-chocoholic in your circle of friends, and SO stinking good that the chocoholics will love it too! :) Whenever we have fondue parties this one is the first one gone. Is also quite delicious cold and makes a wonderful dip for a fruit tray at an evening dessert party. Yummmm!!!!

This is dangerously yummy! I must admit, I was making this to use as an ice cream topping rather than a fondue. I also sampled some cold, and it is equally good that way too. I'm sure it would be perfect as an apple and graham cracker dip. I didn't have any plain rum, so I used some Captain Morgan's instead. The caramel masks the alcohol quite well, so even non-rum fans may be tempted to eat more than their fair share of this, lol. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2013
