Amaretto-Mascarpone Fondue

Amaretto-Mascarpone Fondue



  • 1 1/2 cups (about 12 ounces) mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons amaretto flavored liqueur or espresso coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  • Grilled or broiled peaches, nectarines and pears


  1. In a small saucepan, heat mascarpone cheese over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted. Stir in sugar, amaretto and orange extract and heat 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a ceramic fondue pot and keep warm over a fondue burner. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. The fondue may be served in the pot or individual warmed ramekins.
  3. Serve with grilled or broiled fruit.
  4. For grilled fruit: Heat grill or broiler. Cut fruit in halves and remove pits. Brush lightly with a little melted butter.
  5. Grill fruit over medium-hot coals just until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Don't allow fruit to get too soft. The fruit may also be broiled 3 to 4 minutes, turning once.
