Ingredients

  • 12 Ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup heavy cream
  • 3 Tablespoons raspberry liquor

Directions

Combine the dark chocolate and cream in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water. Heat until the chocolate is melted, stirring constantly; or combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 to 45 seconds. Be careful not to let the chocolate burn. Pour into a warm fondue pot. Drizzle with the liqueur. Keep fondue warm over low heat.

Serve with bite-sized dippers such as strawberries, bananas, marshmallows, Rice Krispies Treats®, pound cake, and brownies.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
