Remember when we made this cheesy beer fondue? Have you made it yet? Are you putting a fondue pot on your holiday wish list? Today we are celebrating the sweeter side of fondue: chocolate fondue! This particular recipe features dark chocolate and cherry liquor. This would make an awesome dinner party dessert with friends. Or you could cut this recipe in half and have a romantic night in with chocolate dessert and maybe a little red wine. Just ideas. Chocolate + Cherry Liqueur Fondue, serves 4-5.
12 oz dark chocolate
2/3 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons cherry liqueur (or red wine, or maraschino cherry juice for a non alcoholic version)
1-2 tablespoons waterAdd all the ingredients to your electric fondue pot and melt together over a low/medium setting. Use a wooden spoon to stir, as the mixture melts together. Once it's completely melted turn the heat down to low.You can serve this along side anything that sounds good to you! Here are a few ideas: apple slices, fresh berries, maraschino cherries, donut holes, pound cake or angel food cake (cut into small cubes), pretzel sticks, small cookies or even cooked bacon strips. If you have left over chocolate, store in an airtight container for up to three days. You can reheat and pour over pancakes, ice cream or fresh fruit. Enjoy! xo. Emma
