Chocolate fondue success!
On New Year's Eve I tried a chocolate fondue recipe from this list. My
husband and I and our 2 middle schooler kids loved it! I used my small "Little
Dipper" crockpot (only has low, pot not removeable, for dips and such). You warm
1/2 cup of cream on the stove in a pan & stir in semi-sweet chocolate chips
(I used a 12-oz bag) until all is melted together. Then stick it in the Little
Dipper to keep warm. I found a set of fondue forks at a Bed Bath & Beyond
store's kitchen section (didn't have to buy the fondue pot!).
We had a great time dipping raspberries, & chunks of pound cake
(store-bought) & apple and pear. Thanks for the recipe and also for several who mentioned
how much they've enjoyed doing fondue at home. I gave everyone a little plate
and another regular fork so no one cut their tongue on the sharp fondue forks
or put their germs back into the common pot.
My L. D. has a short cord, so we actually unplugged it once we sat to eat at
the table, but it stayed warm while we dipped. I put the leftover still in
the pot in the fridge overnight. The next night I just plugged it in and let it
warm up to melt again (it became a solid block in the fridge), added a bit
more cream for texture.
Happy New Year to all,
