Method

  1. Pour the cream in a small pot, then heat over low flame until warm, but do not bring to a boil.
  2. Remove from heat then add the chocolate. Let melt 2 min, then stir, using a whisk, until the mixture becomes smooth.
  3. Transfer to a fondue pot and put it on top of a burner. If the fondue is too thick to your taste, stir in some more cream (or your preferred liquor).
  4. Each guest dips with various fruits and enjoy.
