Monki_Dark_Chocolate_Fondue_served_with_waffles_and_fruitDelicious. Decadent. Surprise your partner by making chocolate fondue or make them together! The combination of chocolate, strawberries, and cream is perfect for romance. 

Recipe for Chocolate Fondue

12 ounces quality dark chocolate, broken into bits
8 ounces whipping cream
1 tablespoon of your favorite liqueur (Frangelico, Chambord and Amaretto work well), (optional)

Garnish the platter with fruit for dipping (firm fruit, such as strawberries, pineapple slices, and orange wedges work best), peeled, sliced or trimmed. Add some marshmallows for some modern style s'mores.

To make the fondue, heat the cream gently in a saucepan over low heat. Gradually add the chocolate pieces, whisking continually until the chocolate melted into the mixture. Add the liqueur, if desired, and whisk thoroughly. Transfer the mixture to a fondue pot (or use the saucepan.)

Serve the fruit on a platter. Dip the fruit into the chocolate using long, thin fondue forks or bamboo sticks.
