THIS IS part of my New Year's resolution. Eat more chocolate. But make it even healthier than they say it is. (As good as falling in love, able to lift depression!) Dip some luscious fruit, all those vitamins, into this melty fondue, and maybe even a bit of cake too. I rate cake as having spiritual attributes. What else would you put a candle into on your birthday?
Are you trying to take off a few pounds?...hmmm....sorry about this!
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 lb. dark or milk chocolate (the best), broken into pieces.
Food for dipping: strawberries, bananas, blackberries, raspberries, pear slices, apple slices...you know...FRUIT!!
Some lovely angel food cake, cut into 1" pieces.
Also dried fruit is suitable. Figs, or pineapple slices, or apricots.
Warm the cream and chocolate in a small saucepan, over low heat. Stir until chocolate melts. Then transfer the fondue to a serving dish. Serve immediately with forks and food for dipping. Serves about 8, who have good dipping manners. Have napkins handy.
See how easy it is to keep a resolution!
