- 1 bag chocolate chips
- 1 half-pint container heavy cream (1 cup)
- 2-3 tbs rum, Kahlua, orange liqueur or other flavoring (espresso, amaretto, peppermint schnapps)
- Strawberries, sliced fruit, cut-up pound cake, marshmallows, etc for dipping
Note: this fondue is good for party settings, because the high amount of liquid means it will not get totally solid when it cools, so will remain "dippable" for quite a while. If you have a fondue pot, or are eating right away, you can add only half the cream and get a more traditional fondue that will cool solid.
Note 2: You can also "make" a fondue pot by taking two metal bowls of the same size, filling the bottom one with very hot water, and stacking the fondue-filled one on top. Refresh the hot water, and your chocolate will stay warm.
Note 3: When they're in season, this is best with just a big bowl of fresh strawberries.
