The chocolate will stiffen if it gets cold, so enjoy it while it's still warm. Skewer and dip anything you like--pear slices, dried apricots, even marshmallows. Source: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2008

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chocolate, cream, espresso, vanilla and salt in a medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. (Alternatively, see "No Microwave?" below.)

  • Pour the chocolate mixture into a serving bowl. Serve with fruit.


Equipment: Fondue forks or bamboo skewers

Kitchen Tip: If you don't have an espresso maker, look for instant espresso powder at your supermarket.

No Microwave? Place chopped chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water. Gently stir until almost melted. Remove from the heat and stir until the chocolate melts completely.
