Cubes of pound cake, dried apricots, marshmallows, strawberries and pineapple chunks make delicious dunkers for this rich, easy-to-make fondue.
oz milk chocolate or 1 bag (11.5 oz) milk chocolate chips (2 cups))
tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur, kirsch, brandy or half-and-half
Dippers (pound cake cubes, strawberries, pineapple chunks, apple slices, marshmallows)
In 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat half-and-half and chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth; remove from heat. Stir in liqueur. Pour into fondue pot or chafing dish.
Spear Dippers with fondue forks; dip into fondue. (If fondue becomes too thick, stir in a small amount of half-and-half.)
Buy precut pineapple in the produce section of your grocery store for an easy addition to the fondue dippers.
The name fondue comes from the French word "fondre," which means "to melt". Whether cheese, wine or chocolate, fondue tastes great in any language!
If dark chocolate is more to your liking, substitute semisweet chocolate chips or sweet baking chocolate for the milk chocolate in this recipe.
