Easy Chocolate Fondue

As promised, I served chocolate fondue for Easter dinner.  The kids thought I was joking, Adam kept asking for a "real dinner".  However, after a few dips of chocolate everyone was very happy.  We had a relaxing Easter morning of church, an egg hunt, and brunch.  The boys colored eggs on Saturday, and spent Sunday morning looking for eggs the Easter Bunny had hidden.  Overall, a very good day!

The recipe for the chocolate fondue is so easy.  I used a combination of semi-sweet and milk chocolate, but use any chocolate combination you desire.  Just make sure you have two cups of chocolate.  You can also add orange liqueur to the fondue for an adult version.  For dipping items, I used fresh fruit like strawberries and bananas, pound cake, marshmallows, pretzels, and cookies.  The possibilities are endless. 

**If you use a dark chocolate or all semi-sweet chocolate,  be sure to add 1/2 c. sugar to the fondue **

1 1/2 c. milk chocolate chips
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. heavy cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

In a medium sauce pot, combine all the ingredients over a low heat. Whisk until the chocolate is melted and smooth.  Pour into a warm fondue pot, and serve with a variety of dippers.
