I made some savory cheese and oil fondues for La Crema this week, so you know I had to take a few extra minutes and whip up a chocolate fondue! I have been really into raspberries lately--I love them on their own, but you really can't beat a fresh berry dipped in warm chocolate sauce. I also picked up some strawberries, blackberries, and some really beautiful satsuma mandarins.
This recipe is really easy--you only really need the two main ingredients (cream and chocolate), but I like to add about a tablespoon of butter to make it super smooth and silky.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon of grass-fed butter (optional but encouraged!)
- Use your fondue pot (or a regular saucepan) to heat up the cream.
- Slowly add chocolate and stir to combine as everything melts together.
- Add the butter and stir to combine. Transfer to fondue pot if you prepared the sauce on the stove. Serve with fresh fruit (you could also dip cookies and marshmallows--whatever your heart desires!).
This recipe is delicious on its own as a treat, but it was even better following the other fondues I made, plus a glass or two of La Crema wines--I poured their Monterey Pinot Gris and some Monterey Chardonnay as well. I'm already planning a low-key Valentine's Day at home with this exact same menu.
