What’s more fun than a pot of warm chocolate fondue surrounded by marshmallows, strawberries, pound cake, marachino cherries and anything else you fancy dipped in chocolate? It’s great to sit with friends and family (or by yourself if you’re not into sharing), spear your favorite dipper, plunge it into the molten chocolate and then maneuver it into your mouth. The person losing their dipper in the chocolate has to buy a round of drinks. I told you this would be fun!
6 ounces semisweet chocolate
3/4 cup cream
1/4 cup milk
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all but vanilla in a saucepan and bring to a boil over low heat until the chocolate melts.
To Serve Hot: Boil for 5 minutes. Add vanilla.
To Serve at Room Temperature: Boil 3 minutes. Add vanilla.
Store in cooler. If it is too thick to serve after coming to room temperature, thin with cream or milk.
