Everyone loves chocolate. Here’s an interesting twist to the classic chocolate fondue. A hint of chili gives this recipe an extraordinary taste. It is bitter, sweet and spicy all at the same time. The Nutella gives it a nutty taste as well.
It is a wonderful dessert, but you can serve it during dinner cocktails as well. You can even have it with champagne, during intimate or formal gatherings.
Makes 1-2 cups
6 ounces (170 grams) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
6 ounces (170 grams) dark chocolate, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup (60 ml) half and half
2 1/2 tablespoons (35 grams) granulated white sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 cup Nutella (optional)
1 tablespoon liqueur (Amaretto, Cognac or Kahlua)
Place the chocolate chips in a big bowl. Set it aside.
In a deep saucepan over medium low heat, combine the half and half, sugar, corn syrup, chili and cinnamon. Mix it well until the sugar granules dissolve and the mixture is hot.
Pour the half and half mixture into the bowl with chocolate. Whisk until smooth. You may use an electric blender if you wish. Fold in the Nutella and liqueur. Continue mixing until the ingredients have blended.
Pour melted chocolate in a fondue pot. Serve with fresh fruits, marshmallows, cake or wafers.
