Maple Fondue

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by SilentCricket

I found this recipe in the December 12, 2000 issue of Woman's Day. It looks like it would be a wonderful dessert for a blustery fall evening or a wintery night!

I served this as a dessert for an impromptu dinner party with some friends - and it was a hit! (Make sure to keep to just a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, though, as the maple flavour is easily overpowered.) Served with strawberries, honeydew melon, sponge cake, and shortbread fingers.
