Chocolate Fondue
Flavors of Switzerland
Total time: less than 15 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note
Chocolate fondue is usually served with a platter of cut-up fruit. The freshness of the fruit covered with the warm chocolate creates a wonderful harmony of flavours and contrast of textures in the mouth. This is a perfect dessert for sharing with friends and is easy to prepare. All you need is a fondue pot set over a warmer and some fondue forks. If you have some slightly dry plain cake, brioche, etc. you could also cut it into cubes and serve alongside the fruit.

Any kind of fruit can be used, but if possible avoid any with seeds. Certain fruits, like citrus or melons, have to be peeled first. The fruits should be cut up taking their shape into account in order to make them as visually attractive as possible. Star fruit is an absolute must. Small fruits such as strawberries are presented whole.
