Today we celebrate Valentine’s Day a day set aside for love and lovers. What is more romantic than a chocolate dessert to enjoy after a romantic dinner?
This fondue is a creamy chocolate indulgence you can easily enjoy at home by candlelight.
8 ounces of heavy cream
1 tablespoon Bailey’s Irish Cream
12 ounces dark, bittersweet chocolate or white chocolate, coarsely chopped
In a small saucepan, warm the cream over moderate heat until tiny bubbles show and it begins to lightly and slowly boil. Add the chocolate and whisk until smooth and fully incorporated.
Immediately transfer to a fondue pot heated at low or with a low flame, or serve right out of the pot or from a serving bowl. Serve immediately.
Arrange the dippables of choice on a platter or plates around the chocolate pot. Use a fondue fork, bamboo skewer, seafood fork, or salad fork to dip the fruit pieces and other dippables into the hot melted creamy chocolate mixture.
Ideas for dippables are strawberries, bananas, apples, pears, pineapple, mangos, pretzels, shortbread cookies, biscotti, pound cake, crisp bacon, potato chips, waffles and peanut butter cookies.
If the fondue begins to feel a little stiff, add a tablespoon of heavy cream and stir.
