Chocolate and StawberriesChocolate and Rum Fondue
6 oz bittersweet chocolate
4 oz semisweet chocolate
1/4 cup rum
1 cup heavy cream
It would be remiss to label chocolate fondue a dessert cliché and ignore its charming goodness. Embrace the old-school, dust off the fondue pot and get ready for a sugar high. Pound cake, raspberries and strawberries are perfect dipping implements.
Yield: 4 servings
Place a medium metal bowl over a pot of simmering water, being sure bottom of bowl does not touch water. Add bittersweet and semisweet chocolate to bowl. Add cream. Stir occasionally until chocolate has melted and entire mixture is warmed through. Transfer mixture to a fondue pot kept on a low flame, and serve.
