A rich chocolate fondue with a little coffee kick. Serve with fruit or pieces of leftover cake on skewers.
This is a great fondue with 1/3 freshly brewed coffee or cappuchino instead of the instant powder and water. A tip for the leftovers (because everyone else was right, this does make a lot!)... This recipie is essentialy a truffle recipie. Let the leftovers cool and then refrigerate. Round out small balls and roll in cocoa powder, powdered sugar or toadsted coconut. All of a sudden you have a new, gormet desert you can serve all over again and impress the crowds! Truffles also make great gifts when wrapped nicely! - 24 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I am 12 and I made this fondue by myself. Oranges, strawberries, pound cake, pineapple, apple, bananas, and marshmallows work best for dipping. - 14 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
The need to entertain spur-of-the moment guests led me to this wonderful dessert recipe. Soooo simple and quick. I don't own a fondue pot, so I made it in a double boiler (without the water) and transferred it to a pretty chafing dish. This was so delicious, Sara. My company thoroughly enjoyed it with a variety of fresh fruit and pound cake. Try the Apricot Brandy Pound Cake (quick version made with Yellow cake mix) from this site. It freezes well and can be cut into cubes easily. I also had some chocolate pound cake from this site in the freezer. I had some 5 inch bamboo skewers left from another recipe that I gave each guest. They were happily threading the skewers with a variety of items, and wondering when I had had the time to prepare such a luscious dessert. They said the fondue was as good if not better than that at a local fondue restaurant. I will use this again and again. - 22 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
