Tips and tricks to create a delicious chocolate fondue.  
Ingredients to bathe in chocolate fondue can be natural or candied fruits, biscuits, muffins, sobaos, etc. If we want to add a crispy touch stir in chopped dried fruit or cereals. To flavor the chocolate, mint may be substituted with cinnamon, peel of citrus fruits, cardamom, liqueur, fruit, vanilla, coconut or any other ingredients of your choice. If we find dark chocolate to be too strong, we can replace it with milk chocolate, white chocolate or colored chocolate frosting. However, we will need to take into account melting  temperatures will vary depending on the type of chocolate used., being white chocolate  more prone to burn than dark chocolate.

  • 18 oz chocolate milk chocolate 40%
  • 13 oz dark chocolate 60%
