I looked at some recipes online, and then true to form, I didn't follow them. Most called for expensive chocolates, liquors, and nuts. I just used what I had around the house. I was inspired by Rachel Ray to add hazelnuts, but I did it my way.
Chocolate Chip Fondue
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips*
3/4 cup half and half **
2 Tablespoons Hazelnut flavored coffee syrup
Arrange cubes of sponge cake, shortbread cookies, potato chips, marshmallows, strawberries, pineapple, oranges, or any other seasonal fruit on a tray
|Sorry for the bad lighting|
It really WAS late.
You will want to serve this right away.
*the bitterness of the semi-sweet is perfect for this dish. I used store brand and it was really good. I've also tried various brands of milk chocolate, and have not been happy with the results. Stick to semi-sweet or dark.
**I had some half on half on hand, typically recipes call for heavy cream so you could use that instead.
