Web's Best Recipe Chocolate Fondue

Fondues go in and out of fashion, it seems. Still, a good recipe chocolate fondue makes a delightful dessert for special occasions.

It's a good dessert for any time that you want something fast and easy or if you want a dessert that can be prepared in advance.

Trivia: The word "fondue" is derived from the French verb fondre, meaning "to melt".

If you're looking for a good qualtity fondue set, the Trudeau Alto 3 In 1 Electric Fondue Set, 11-Piece Set , pictured above, is among the best around.

On the other hand, if you just want a little something to have fun with, this Hershey's Smore Maker with bonus Hershey's Kiss fondue is super!

And now for your first recipe chocolate fondue.

1/2 cup cream
1 pound milk chocolate
3 tbsp Kirsch, Cointreau, or Brandy. Substitute 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract if you do not want to use spirits.

Warm cream in saucepan over low heat. Break the chocolate into little pieces, and add to cream. Stir constantly until chocolate is melted and blended. Add spirits.

Serve in fondue dish over candle or very low heat. Fruit, slices of cake or cookies or biscotti are good for dunking.

Now, the recipe chocolate fondue:

2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup skim milk

Turn down heat, and stirring constantly, cook until mixture is thick and smooth. Cool slightly then stir in vanilla and sugar substitute. Place in serving bowl.
