Fondue- A communal dish made with Wine, Cheese and flour is typically eaten with bread. Fondue stems from the French word ‘fondre’ –to melt. This dish originated in Switzerland. It was considered a peasant dish and was a way to melt the hardened cheeses. The cheese and other ingredients are often melted in a fondue pot. You can find these pots in a lot of kitchen appliances’ stores in all fancy shapes and designs. You could also use a regular pot, which is what I used for this recipe. You need to keep melting the cheese/chocolate such that it does not stiffen up. I make this fondue by melting Chocolate instead of Cheese and substituting Almond extract for liqueur;).You could skip this almond extract if you would like.The best part of it is you can use this as a drizzle on any dessert or eat it all by itself as pure chocolate
4 oz Semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup heavy cream, to make it smooth
1 tsp Almond extract, optional
Fruits like Strawberries, grapes, pineapple
Heat the chocolate and cream in a pan/thick bottomed vessel. Keep stirring until it is silk smooth. Add the extract and stir until the mixture is smooth. Pour it in a bowl, gather around the table and dip ‘em in.
Note: You may need to reheat the chocolate to keep it warm. I substituted a regular pot for a fondue pot.
