Like I need to write a jaunty Valentine's Day aka Chocolate Day intro.
Dark Chili-Infused Fondue (serves two to three -- or one)
1 110 gr (3.5 oz) bar of Green & Black's Organic Dark 70%
1/2 cup of 35% cream
1 tbsp + 2 tsps water
2 dried, chopped red chilis
â€¢ caramelized banana slices, cherries, apple slices, pastry squares and chips
Directions -- stovetop:
â€¢ Break up chocolate and put in a saucepan with the cream and water. Over low heat stir with a small wire whisk until ingredients are smooth and combined. Add red chilis and stir.
â€¢ If the resulting sauce is too thick, add a few drops of water and whisk to blend.
â€¢ Serve in a small bowl for easy dippie dipping.
â€¢If fondue gets cool and thick, microwave for 10 seconds and stir; repeat if necessary.
Directions -- microwave:
â€¢ Break up chocolate and put in plastic bowl with the cream and water.
â€¢ Give the mix 10- to 20-second bursts in the microwave, whisking in between, until blended and warm. Stir in chilis.
And for dessert, Amaretto-Almond Fondue
1 100 gr (3.5 oz) bar of Green & Black's Milk Chocolate and Almond
1/8 cup + 1 tbsp water
2 tbsps (1 oz) Amaretto
instructions pretty much as above
â€¢ strawberries, peach slices, grapes, almonds
Enjoy your delicious, delightful weekend. And remember, no-one needs to know you have leftovers or what you do with them.
