Chocolate-Sour Cream Fondue
- 12 ounces milk chocolate, semisweet chocolate or sweet cooking chocolate
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 to 3 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur,
Kirsch, brandy, white creme de menthe, 2 teaspoons dry instant coffee or 1/4 teaspoon
- Heat chocolate and half-and-half in heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring
constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth.
- Remove from heat; stir in liqueur or other flavoring. Pour into fondue pot
or chafing dish with water bath; keep warm over very low heat.
A slow cooker set on low does a great job of keeping the fondue warm. Stir
in a small amount of cream if fondue becomes too thick while guests are dipping.
