This was our fun Valentine's Day treat with the kids, but you could make it for guests or a fun date night dessert too.
I used these two recipes from bettycrocker.com:
Milk Chocolate Fondue
Dark Chocolate Fondue
to come up with the one I made tonight.
Here's the horrible (sorry!) picture of our treat:
It was delicious!! Even if you don't have a fondue pot, I think you could eat this right out of the saucepan - if you eat fast. :)
This dessert took less than 15 minutes to prepare. Enjoy!
2/3 cup half-and-half
12 oz semisweet chocolate chips or 2 cups (you could use another flavor of chips like white chocolate or milk chocolate - get creative!)
2 Tbsp half-and-half (or liqueurs, as the original recipes called for, but we don't drink alcohol so we used more half-and-half)
1 tsp vanilla
Dippers: Pound cake or angel cake cubes, marshmallows, mini sugar cookies, brownie cubes, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, bananas, dried apricots, pineapple chunks, etc
- In 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat half-and-half and chocolate over low heat (very important so it doesn't burn), stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth; remove from heat.
- Stir in 2 Tbsp half-and-half (or liqueurs) and vanilla. Stir until fully incorporated & creamy-smooth.
- Pour into fondue pot.
- Spear dippers with fondue forks; dip into fondue.
If fondue becomes too thick, stir in a small amount of half-and-half.
