World Of Chocolate: Chocolate Fondue

world_of_chocolateWhile in your online short course there are many affordable options, you don’t need a specialized fondue pot to enjoy decadently rich chocolate over fresh fruit or pound cake squares. Just use a crock pot to keep your chocolate fondue from getting cold or solidifying. If you have a double boiler, you can prep the fondue in that and serve in a hot bowl – just don’t let anyone touch it. Fondue isn’t just a relic of the 1970s, it is a great way to get people together and enjoy an out-of-the-ordinary treat that is extremely customizable.

The type of fondue will vary with the type of chocolate, and other additional ingredients. You can get creative with your concoction and add a little bit of liquor to the recipe for a tasty hazelnut mix. Add cream, bittersweet chocolate, Frangelico and hazelnuts to your fondue pot and indulge in the rich and flavorful combination. Play with flavor combinations and look through various fondue recipes. You can use white, milk, or dark chocolates and even add some spice from cayenne pepper if you want a little kick to accompany the sweetness.

Although you may want to simply eat the melted chocolate mixture by the spoonful, using items to dip is just as satisfying. The items you choose to serve with your fondue are completely up to you. Popular accompaniments are cut up fresh fruits like banana, strawberries, and apples, or more substantial treats like pretzels, marshmallows, or angel food cake.  If you do not have fondue forks, you can easily use bamboo skewers for dipping, but make sure your guests have plates to catch the drips.

A fondue pot doesn’t have to be expensive but it will make your presentation look much more professional and you won’t have to worry about the chocolate hardening or getting cold. Some pots have an alcohol burner, some are electric, and others use a candle for smaller batches to keep the contents of the pot warm. Whether you go all out, or make do with what you have, fondue is an easy dish that is both elegant and fun.
