DIRECTIONS

  • Break the chocolate bar into chunks-- the smaller the chunks, the smoother, faster and easier the chocolate will melt.
  • Heat the half-and-half in a non-stick saucepan on a low flame while adding the chocolate, stirring constantly until chocolate is melted to the consistency you desire.
  • Use more half-and-half for thinner fondu, less for thicker.
  • Be careful not to over-cook because the chocolate will form a film which may taste bitter if reblended into mixture.
  • Serve in a chocolate fondu pot (reasonably priced at Target. com) or in a ceramic bowl (to hold the heat longer).
  • The fondu pot is better because it allows you to keep chocolate warm with a tea light.
  • Dip fruit into chocolate and enjoy!
  • Notes: If you do not have fondu forks, you can use bamboo skewers.
  • I cut them in half for ease of use.
  • Arrange and serve the fruit on a pretty platter.
  • This makes the experience that much more delightful.
  • Dried fruits, nuts and popcorn are delicious dippers, too!
  • Chocolate fondue goes very well with dry champagne, full-bodied red wines and crisp, dry white wines.
  • Enjoy!
