Super Bowl is always fun and having small plate foods is awesome. Chocolate Fondue is the perfect way to serve dessert.
Fruits such as bananas, strawberries, raspberries. Cookies like Oreos, pirouette cookies, or shortbread cookies, vanilla wafers. Cakes like Angel Food cake cubes, Pound cake cubes. Maybe Rice Krispy treats or large marshmallows.
10 ounces high quality Chocolate chips (Ghirardelli’s or Guittard Chips, bittersweet or semisweet or milk or combination. You can also use a high-quality chocolate bar broken into pieces.)
1 Tablespoon Light corn syrup, helps to keep chocolate from going sugary
1/3 Cup milk
1/3 Cup Heavy Cream
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Start by preparing all the ingredient you will be dipping into the fondue. Make sure the fruits are dry, moisture makes the chocolate go grainy and thick. Cut everything into bite-size pieces.
To make the fondue, in a small fondue pot combine the chocolate, corn syrup, milk, cream. Put temperature on low. Stir often until melted and smooth, about 5-8 minutes. You may need to add more milk if the mixture is too thick. Add the vanilla and salt. Serve immediately keeping on low heat.
If you do not have a fondue pot you can use a tiny crock pot or a double boiler or just microwave on HALF power. Don’t let the mixture get too hot or it will taste bitter.
Serve with fondue forks and a lot of napkins. It can get messy, but it is divine.
I like to serve with spoons and drizzle on top instead of dipping the traditional way because I must keep it gluten free for me. To make Gluten Free make sure your chocolate does not have Malt Barley Syrup and your cookies and treats are Gluten Free.
