Add Smiles To Your Celebration With Chocolate Fondue and Fruit Dippers
It’s always nice to get kids involved in the kitchen. Easter is a perfect opportunity to get them involved in preparing a relatively healthy dessert: chocolate fondue with lots of fresh fruit dippers.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of whipping cream (not whipped)
A dessert fondue pot with unscented candlelight and fondue forks or bamboo skewers.
Depending on how old and how responsible your children are, you can assign them these tasks:
-Peel a banana
-Peel an orange
-Wash an apple
-Wash some grapes
-slice the banana and apple into bite-size pieces.
-cover the bottom of the fondue pot with a single layer of chocolate chips.
-light up the candle
-gently stir and add more chocolate as it melts. Tell your child to tell you when the pot is about 1/3 full.
It’s best to have an adult supervise the melting process to ensure the child doesn’t let the chocolate burn.
Final touch (you, the adult):
Pour a little bit of cream to reduce the chocolate consistency to make it easier to dip pieces of fruit into it. Don’t worry if you make it too runny, simply melt more chocolate to make it more solid.
The entire family can then use bamboo skewers or fondue forks to dip healthy pieces of fruit into a little bit of chocolate.
What a wonderful way to finish off Easter dinner together!
P.S. You can also use other types of chocolate chips (milk chocolate, butterscotch, white chocolate, etc.)
You can find lots of fondue recipes on http://www.bestfondue.com, including many other fondue recipes for dessert, cheese fondue, broth and hot oil fondue.
