Fondue is melted food, usually chocolate or cheese, kept warm in a fondue pot to preserve the melted consistency of the food. Savory fondue recipes are typically paired with bread, crackers and vegetables. Sweet fondue recipes, on the other hand, are usually paired with cake, pretzels, marshmallows or even fruit. Your options are limitless!
Sweet Fondue Recipes
Tips for Cooking with Chocolate
- Use a potato or vegetable parer to make chocolate curls for decorating cakes and pies. You can use bars of semi-sweet or bitter chocolate. The chocolate should be at room temperature or even very slightly warmer. You can adjust the thickness and length of the curls by the pressure of your strokes.
- To melt chocolate, chop fine. Place in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave, uncovered, at 100 percent power, stirring every 10 seconds.
- Use self-sealing plastic bags to melt butter or chocolate in the microwave.
