Quick and Easy Dark Chocolate Fondue

Photos by Jaymi Heimbuch

Fondue is the perfect dish. Yes, it is tasty (very tasty!) but it is also a very social dish. Good friends gather around the fondue pot just waiting to see who'll be the first to lose their bread chunk--it's usually me! Enjoy this dark chocolate fondue with a late harvest Mourvèdre, you won't regret it.

  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 dark chocolate bars (about two pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur
  • Pinch of salt

1. Bring a 1/2 cup of the whipping cream to a very low simmer. Do not let it boil. You just want to keep it warm enough to receive the chocolate and to melt it.

2. Break chocolate up into many pieces and add it to the warmed cream.

3. OK go on, sneak a few nibbles for yourself. Who can resist dark chocolate? I sure cannot.

4. I love this part as It looks like a fancy cappuccino coming into focus. As the chocolate softens it begins to swirl and dance with the warmed milk.

5. Slowly mix in the remaining cream to your desired textured. This really depends on what you are going to be dipping in it. For example, bread will work with almost any consistency where as the apple is bit more picky. You need more liquid.

6. Transfer to a fondue pot and finish with the liquer.

8. Enjoy with pretzels, marshmallows, fruit or bread.
