As you know Valentine’s Day is just four weeks away and we hope you are planning a romantic evening with your significant other. One great addition to sitting around a nice fireplace is a chocolate fondue pot. While there are many food items you can dip or drizzle chocolate on is Sunburst Navel Oranges.
Here is a great recipe for your chocolate sauce.
2 cups heavy Cream
16 ounces of milk chocolate or one 12 ounce bag milk chocolate chips or about 2 cups. Some prefer the use of a bittersweet chocolate rather than the milk chocolate.
Dippers can be yellow pound cake cubes, Sunburst Navel Oranges, apple slices, pretzels and marshmallows – you can also consider biscotti and other store bought dippers. Some favorites are baklava, coconut macaroons and ice cream filled cream puffs.
In 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat the heavy cream and chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth; remove from heat. Pour into fondue pot or chafing dish. This should be good for about fifteen minutes before the chocolate becomes to thick to dip.
Spear Dippers with fondue forks; dip into fondue or use the back of a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the food.
To have a longer time to dip your food you need to keep your chocolate warm (only 110 degrees Fahrenheit) You can also put the pot over a candle using a warmer or chafing stand. This will keep it warm and liquid.
If you don’t want an open flame to warm your fondue you can consider an electric version. Yes, I know you have seen the two and three hundred dollar versions but you can find electric fondue pots on Amazon.com as low as $24.99 plus shipping.
To save a bit on calories you can substitute half and half for the heavy cream and leave out the yellow pound cake and other high calorie dippers.
