At work we celebrate all the birthdays in one given month, and this month was my assignment to do the "treats". I have been thinking about chocolate covered strawberries and suddenly remembered the chocolate fondue from my "hay days" and went for it for the party. I found a recipe online and it was easy, chocolately and creamy, so am passing it on. You can have whatever you like for "dippers". I had pretzels, almond biscotti, marshmallows, fresh pineapple, strawberries, raspberries, clementine sections, and bananas, but angel food wedges, pound cake, and whatever else you like is an option. I also added some sliced almonds, coconut and sprinkles for adding onto the chocolate. It seemed like everyone liked it and it was a good conversation dessert. We were so busy eating that we forgot the birthday song!
Here is the fondue recipe:
in a heavy saucepan-medium sized, combine the following ingredients:
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons butter
1 (14 ounce sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
2 Tablespoons water
Over medium heat melt the above, then add 1 tsp vanilla.
Serve warm..store leftovers in the fridge. can be used over ice cream or cake also.
