Happy Healthy Holidays

Plunging exotic fruit into the depths of a warm lake of creamy chocolate is nothing less than heavenly. A rainbow of juicy, slightly tart tropical fruit skewered on a silver fork is just the thing to contrast with the rich cover of chocolate fondue. There are a few common pitfalls that can turn your satiny-sweet chocolate into a bitter, burnt and coagulated mess. However, it is easy to avoid them with a few simple steps.

Chocolate Making Fondue

Chocolate Fondue Recipe

2 cups milk chocolate chips
3 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons cherry brandy
1 tablespoon strong brewed coffee
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine chocolate, cream, brandy, coffee and cinnamon in a fondue pot over a low flame (or in a saucepan over low heat). Heat until melted, stirring occasionally. Serve at once.

For perfect results, start the fondue on the stove. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and combine it with the cream in a small saucepan. Stir it constantly over low heat, just until it melts completely.

Mix in any other flavorings and liqueurs you'd like to add. Now all that's left is to pour it into the fondue pot, light the burner and let your heart ignite.
