Fair Trade Chocolate Fondue
Dippables: You can dip almost anything in chocolate and it tastes good, but here are some more traditional options.
- Strawberries Stemmed
- Equal Exchange Bananas sliced just before serving
- Navel oranges sectioned
- Ripe and diced pineapples
- Salted pretzel sticks
- Dried apricots
- Apple slices
- Pound cake cubed
- And anything else sweet that will hold together when dipped into chocolate!
Prepare your dippables by chopping them into bite-sized cubes (except bananas). Place in refrigerator.
Heat 1/2 cup of cream over medium heat in a non- reactive pot until it comes to a light boil. Remove from heat and add in chopped Equal Exchange chocolate bars. Allow them to melt for 3 or 4 minutes and then whisk chocolate and cream mixture together. Add chopped almonds and stir (optional).
Transfer melted chocolate to a fondue pot and serve. If mixture starts to become more solid you can add additional cream, 1 tablespoon at a time to bring it to your desired consistency.
