Easy Chocolate Fondue

Easy Chocolate Fondue

There’s no two ways around it, fondue is fun. It can be romantically-playful fun, it can be make-a-chocolate-mess-with-the-kids fun, it can just be plain old fun. And who doesn’t like fun? Especially when it involves chocolate! In this version from Eating Well, the chocolate will stiffen if it gets cold, so enjoy it while it’s still warm and wonderfully gooey. Skewer and dip anything you like.

3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon brewed espresso (see Kitchen Tip)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Dippers of your choice: banana, pears, dried apricots, strawberries, marshmallows, etc

1. Place chocolate, cream, espresso, vanilla and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, place chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water. Gently stir until almost melted. Remove from the heat and stir until the chocolate melts completely.

2. Pour the chocolate mixture into a serving bowl. Serve with fruit.
