Chocolate Fondue Recipe

  1. 1. Chocolate Fondue By: Lisa Hodge
  2. 2. <ul><li>You may think you need to own a special fondue pot, but while it’s fun to have one, it’s not absolutely necessary. </li></ul><ul><li>A fondue pot is really just a warming dish on a stand, with a candle underneath the pot to keep what’s in it warm. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Without a candle, a regular bowl should stay warm for about 20 minutes. <ul><li>The “special” equipment usually also includes long forks for dipping the fruit into the chocolate, but you can substitute regular forks, bamboo skewers or even long toothpicks. </li></ul>

  8. 8. <ul><li>Arrange the dippables on a platter or plates around the chocolate pot.
