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.

  • Equipment: Fondue forks or bamboo skewers
  • Kitchen Tip: If you don't have an espresso maker, look for instant espresso powder at your supermarket.

tip - try using nonfat yogurt or low fat soy milk instead of cream - surprising how well that works :)
