Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate Fondue

12 oz. dark chocolate (*suggested: Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars, 3 bars should be sufficient)
8 oz. heavy cream
Dash of salt

Heat heavy cream over medium heat until small bubbles begin to form (*do not bring to heavy boil), lightly boiling. Add in the chocolate and dash of salt (*Dash=just a drop…), whisking in the cream until fully incorporated and smooth. Immediately transfer chocolate mixture to the fondue pot (*fondue pot should be set on low heat). Serve from fondue pot (*Basically everyone can just use the fondue forks that comes with the fondue pot to take the dippers i.e. strawberries, marshmallows, etc. to dip into the chocolate in the fondue pot). Enjoy!

*Johnna’s tip: The big Lovers Day (*i.e. Valentines Day) inspired us to pull out the ‘ole fondue pot, which was a huge hit at our Valentine’s get together this past weekend. Guests were able to indulge in the chocolate with dippables such as strawberries, marshmallows and brownies. Other great dippables are bananas, pound cake and cheesecake (*Cheesecake is a JKGF favorite, a must try on our list of dippables with fondue). Fondue pots are also inexpensive and add just the right flare to your small, intimate gatherings…try it!
