Chocolate fondue is an easy and simple desserts. Chocolate fondue is the perfect way to end a romantic meal. The set up can be done way in advanced and the only thing you have to do later is turn on a little flame. Although a fondue pot does make it easier, it isn’t necessary. You can just heat the sauce beforehand in a small saucepan and pour in a bowl. Serve with different fresh or dried fruits, cakes, and cookies that are placed on attractive platters along with small wooden skewers for dipping. Reheat the sauce as necessary in the microwave.

6 ounces semisweet, or bittersweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon Kirsch brandy, Grand Marnier or rum, or to taste (optional)
A pinch of salt
Assorted fruits (such as whole strawberries, pineapple slices, pear slices, banana slices, apple slices)
Dried Fruits (such as apricot, candied ginger)
Angel-food cake, brownies, pound cake cubes, and pretzels

1. In the top of a double boiler placed over gently simmering water, or in heavy small saucepan, combine the chocolate pieces, salt, and 1/4 cup cream. Heat, stirring constantly, over low heat until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in additional cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.

2. Pour mixture into a fondue pot and stir in the brandy or rum(if using). Place over fondue burner set on low. With fondue forks or long bamboo skewers, dip fruit dippers, cake cubes and/or marshmallows into chocolate mixture. (Will hold up to 1 hour on low. If mixture gets too thick, add cream 1 tablespoon at a time and stir.)

Note: Fondue can sit at room temperature for several hours or in refrigerator for several days. Before serving, reheat until warm. Fruit should be patted dry to allow fondue to adhere to surface.
