Double boiler is a process of cooking with steam of water. For this, place a heavy bottom pan over medium heat and fill it with water half way through. When the water starts to boil, place a heat resistant bowl on it in such a way that the bowl does not touch the water. Double boiler is ready to perform!
Cut all the chocolate into small pieces and set aside. Start by adding fresh cream to the double boiler bowl and stir frequently until the cream is almost ready to boil. Now add in to this chopped chocolate and keep stirring until all the chocolate melts to form a creamy consistency. Turn off the heat and add the Grand Marnier to this. Stir this until combined.
Chocolate Fondue Platter:
Pour the prepared fondue in to a fondue pot and light the tea light candle under it. Dice the fruits and pound cake in to bite size pieces and arrange them on a serving platter. Take a fork/toothpick or fondue stick, place your favorite fruit or cake, dip it in the fondue and always enjoy with loved ones!
1. Quality of the fondue depends on how good the chocolates are? Ghirardelli and Lindt are the preferred brands for this recipe.
2. Feel free to use sliced oranges or peaches also.
