I got a fondue pot for Christmas, hooray! Of course I had to test it out on New Year’s Eve. I mean, who doesn’t want a celebration to include a boatload of chocolate or cheese? Since we had a savory platter of cheese, sausage, and crackers, chocolate was the fondue of choice to add sweetness to our evening. A delightful treat to end 2014!
***If you don’t have a fondue pot at home, I think this recipe would work in a slow-cooker (just make the fondue in a saucepan and then transfer to a slow-cooker set on low heat or warm).
Chocolate Fondue Printer-Friendly Recipe
Recipe Slightly Adapted From: Ghiradelli via AllRecipes
Ready in: 10 minutes
1 1/4 cups whole milk or heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 ounces Ghiradelli Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Bars (broken into 1-inch pieces)
6 ounces Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips
Combine the milk, vanilla, and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Immediately remove from heat and stir in both of the chocolates. Stir until smooth. Serve in a fondue pot over a low heat (enough to keep the fondue warm but not too hot). Great dipping choices are strawberries and pound cake. Enjoy!
