Silky Chocolate Fondue

This is an easy and delicious recipe to make!

Silky Chocolate Fondue

6 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Assorted dippers such as strawberries, marshmallows, pound cake cubes or graham crackers

In small (2-qt.) saucepan, bring 1 inch of water to a simmer over low heat. In double boiler, combine chocolate, ice cream topping and cream; mix well. Set double boiler over simmering water in saucepan. Heat chocolate mixture 7-10 minutes or until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, stirring occasionally. **It time is of the essence, you may microwave the chocolate, caramel, and whipping cream.**

Pour chocolate mixture into Simple Additions™ Small Bowl. Serve fondue immediately with assorted dippers. Yield: 1 1/3 cups (10 servings)

For additional flavor and variety, stir 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of any one of the following into fondue: almond, mint or vanilla extract, ground cinnamon or finely snipped orange zest. Pampered Chef
