Get That "Lovin' Feeling" With This Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart

Dark Chocolate Fondue

Dark Chocolate Fondue For Two

You may think that fondue is a special-occasion food that you can only get for a hefty sum at a white-tablecloth restaurant, but there's another way to dip goodies in that decadent, warm chocolate sauce.

Instead of investing in a fancy fondue pot, try making the fondue in a small saucepan.

Lay out your favorite fondue ingredients; mine happen to be salty pretzel pieces, vanilla marshmallows, and strawberries, but you can use whatever fruit, cake, and candy you like.

Once the fondue is made, transfer the saucepan to the table — place it on a kitchen towel to prevent it from damaging any surfaces — and start dipping away with your fingers or a fondue fork, if you have one.

This thick dark chocolate fondue is only slightly sweet, so it pairs perfectly with the items at hand. It makes for a very romantic way to end Valentine's Day.

Notes

Reheat fondue as needed by returning the saucepan to the stove over low heat. Whisk it constantly to prevent the bottom from scorching.

Dark Chocolate Fondue

Ingredients

1 cup (8 ounces) dark chocolate, like Tcho 68 percent dark couverture
3/4 cup (6 ounces) whipping cream
Pinch of salt
1 16-ounce container strawberries
1 bag marshmallows
1 bag pretzels, like Pretzel Crisps

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the milk over low heat until small bubbles form, whisking often so the milk does not scald. Whisk in the chocolate until it melts and the mixture completely emulsifies into a pudding-like texture. Remove from heat and serve with the strawberries, marshmallows, and pretzels.
