I adopted this recipe after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. His original comments were, "A simple party dessert which is a year-round opportunity to use the season's best and ripest fruit." My comments submitted as a review when I first tried it were, "Excellent chocolate fondue. I cut the recipe in half and prepared it with Ghirardelli Semi-sweet chocolate and heavy cream. Hubby and I ate an entire pound of strawberries dipped in this luxury while watching movies tonight." I have made this many times since for just Hubby and I, and for guests. It is a very good chocolate fondue.
