Chocolate fondue

This recipe is awesome! Please maintain a low heat so that you do not scald or even burn the chocolate. Too much heat will ruin it, whether on or off the stove.

1/2 cup heavy dream
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped in food processor
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound cake cut into 1 inch pieces
2 pints strawberries; rinsed, trimmed and cut in halves or quarters

  1. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the steam until steam begins to rise.
  2. Remove from heat and add the chocolate and stir until melted, smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the vanilla and stir until blended. Sometimes I will put it back over medium heat if I think it needs a little extra umph.
  4. Pour the chocolate sauce into your fondue pot and put over heat as directed.
  5. Serve with pound cake and strawberries on individual fondue forks for dipping.
