Chocolate Caramel Fondue: National Fondue Day

OK, today is actually National Cheese Fondue Day, but I'm a CHOCOLATE kind of person, so I've tweaked the holiday. If you'd like to read a really great post about Cheese Fondue, go to my other blog, Mystery Fanfare, where Avery Aames, author of the Cheese Shop Mysteries, has posted a guest blog about Cheese Fondue! Recipe, photos and book give-away.

But back to the chocolate. Here's a simple chocolate fondue recipe with a twist: Caramel.


1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 jar Recchiuti burnt caramel sauce (I'm partial to this sauce)*
3 ounces extra dark chocolate (85% cacao), chopped
Assorted fresh fruit

1. Combine the condensed milk, caramel sauce and chocolate in a saucepan. Cook over low heat until chocolate is melted.
2. Put in a fondue pot and keep warm.

Serve fresh fruit for dipping!

This sounds fabulous. The additional of burnt caramel, yum!

Changing cheese to chocolate -- I like the way you think, Janet. This sounds like a fantastic way to celebrate the day.
