There's nothing like bonding over a pot of gourmet chocolate fondue. To make an easy chocolate fondue, melt one part light cream or half and half for every two parts semisweet chocolate chips. Add a dash of vanilla extract. Stir the fondue so there are no lumps. Experiment with different fruits and breads for dipping. This fondue is easy to make, but has all the class of a luxury chocolate delicacy.
Can any good brand of chocolate be used for dipping strawberries and still set up hard when cool? If not, can anything be done to it or added to the melted chocolate to ensure it will set up hard to the touch?
