Chocolate fondue is SOOO extremely easy to make that I have to wonder why they sell “chocolate fondue” kits at the supermarket. You basically need only three ingredients: chocolate of some kind, cream of some kind (condensed milk also works if you use unsweetened chocolate) and alcohol of some sort. I think the key is to use good quality chocolate.
-1/2 lb semi-sweet chocolate (shredded, chopped or chocolate chips)
-1/2 lb milk chocolate (shredded, chopped or chocolate chips)
-1/2 cup heavy cream
-Chocolate Liqueur, Kalhua and Bailey’s to taste.
Heat the cream in the fondue pot. Add the chocolate and stir until it’s all melted. Add more cream if necessary to get the right consistency. Add the liqueurs, take to the table and serve.
Serve with cubed cheese cake, cubed pound cake (Sara Lee’s), sliced bananas and mixed berries, or anything else you like.
Note, you can used the cooled chocolate fondue as a great filling for cakes and other pastries.
