This weekend we had friends over for fondue, figuring it would be a quick throw together meal. Not so much. I had never prepped three courses of fondue before and cutting everything up takes longer than you would think. We started with a cheese fondue, a coq au vin fondue for the main course, and then peanut butter chocolate fondue for dessert. I'll post the cheese fondue later but don't you always wish you could just start with dessert?
Anyone that has ever had chocolate fondue knows how amazing it is when you dip your cold fresh strawberry into the molten chocolate, but imagine dipping it into a liquid peanut butter cup. This is by far the best dessert fondue I have had to date.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fondue
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Dippers: we used banana slices, halvedries, cheesecake, chocolate wafers, grahm crackers, marshmallows
In a heavy saucepan, cook and stir the chocolate chips, sugar, milk
and peanut butter over low heat until smooth. Transfer to a fondue
pot and keep warm. Serve with bananas and strawberries, and other things you plan on dipping.
Yield: 12 servings.
Twist on a s'more. Chocolate wafer, marshmallow peanut butter chocolate, and banana.
