Raspberry Chocolate Fondue

Yum
Fondue is a traditional part of our New Year's Eve celebration.
We start with a cheese fondue, move on to some tempura and then finish with a chocolate fondue!
Who knew that the fondue pot we laughed about as a wedding present eons ago, would become part of an annual tradition to ring in the new year.  Love the cheese!  Love the tempura!  But, love, love, love the last phase of the fondue process!!!  The chocolate is the best part and this year we are going to serve a 

Raspberry Chocolate Fondue!



Do you know just how easy chocolate fondue can be?



This Raspberry Chocolate Fondue is made on the stovetop.  Or, the chocolate can be melted in a fondue pot.  OR pour the heavenly, melted raspberry chocolate into individual ramekins.  Place the ramekins on individual plates filled with your favorite fixins'.  I chose red velvet brownies, pretzels and marshmallows.  Oh my!  Individual fondue plates!  Double dipping for sure!!!  You can use fruit or anything else you like coated in chocolate.  The chocolate will stay in it's liquid state for a pretty long time.  But, think about it...it's so good, you will slurp it up!  Really, it's that good!  So, I don't think you will need to be worrying about hardening chocolate....



Ingredients:
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp raspberry extract
Directions:
Place whipping cream into a pot over medium heat.  Bring to a very low simmer.  Turn off heat.  Add the chocolate chips and continue to stir until melted.  Add the raspberry extract.  Serve in a fondue pot to keep warm or serve in individual ramekins.  Add your choice of dippable items.



Just dip your finger, I mean marshmallow into that rich raspberry chocolate!

Soooo good!  Wouldn't that be a fun treat for New Year's Eve?
