Chocolate Fondue from Dip Café

Serves 4
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 lb. Valrhona 40% Jivara Chocolate
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. brandy or alcohol of your choice

Put approximately 4" of water in saucepan; bring to a slow boil. Place mixing bowl on top; pour in heavy cream and heat. Meanwhile, chop chocolate. When the cream feels hot to the touch, add chocolate; whisk until smooth. Whisk in vanilla and alcohol. Pour into warm fondue pot, keeping flame low as not to burn fondue. Serve with strawberries, bananas, brownies or pineapple.
