Reading: How to make chocolate fondue
Certainly one of my mother’s go-to desserts rising up was chocolate fondue. With a household as massive as ours (9 whole!), fondue was a straightforward deal with that introduced the entire household collectively. That, and my mother, was a self proclaimed chocolate addict.
Though my mother has all the time been a little bit of a minimalist within the kitchen (only a few devices/cookware), the one exception to that rule is her large fondue fountain. So when my boys had an evening over with their grandparents and the fountain got here out, they instantly fell in love with it. As soon as they got here house they each stored asking incessantly that we get a chocolate fountain like their Grandma has.
Whereas we don’t have fancy dipping instruments or a cool 3-tiered fondue fountain, I’ve been capable of please the boys with an easier chocolate fondue and it’s now changing into a enjoyable custom in our house. It’s enjoyable to take an extended time to eat a dessert and speak/snicker via the method of dipping and sampling. It’s additionally a bit of very messy in my house, however you win some and also you lose some I suppose.
Talking from expertise, the recipe for this fondue is unquestionably kid-approved. Most fondue recipes use lots of bittersweet and darkish chocolate which I do love, however the children? Not a lot. This recipe is a mix of semi-sweet and milk chocolate. It IS candy, however not sickly so.
And the good information is, in the event you aren’t serving this to children and like a darker chocolate fondue combination, the portions on this recipe will work with no matter chocolate you determine to make use of! I like utilizing two sorts of chocolate because it yields a richer and deeper last taste.
- Use REAL, top quality chocolate bars. Merely put, the higher the chocolate you utilize, the higher your fondue will find yourself. Sadly chocolate chips don’t work nice in fondue — the flavour isn’t fairly proper they usually harden rather a lot faster. Chocolate chips aren’t pure chocolate both, and that’s important for a very good fondue.
- Ensure that the fondue fountain, and another dishes the chocolate is available in contact with are utterly dry and freed from any water. Water will trigger the chocolate to grab and smash the fondue.
- Experiment! You possibly can add lots of enjoyable selection to a fondue by experimenting with new chocolate flavors and kinds.
