About this recipe: Take a trip back to the '70s with this totally awesome chocolate fondue. It is simply prepared in a fondue pot and served with your favourite fruits -- sliced strawberries, bananas, Granny Smith apples, oranges, pineapple -- and even snack foods such as pretzels.
I found this recipe to be a good base for "chocolate fondue with liqueur." I followed others advice- 6 Tbsp. heavy cream & 4 tbsp. of liqueur. I was surprised how easy it really was to do. I made one pot with cherry brandy, one with mint liqueur and one with Irish cream. Couldn’t taste the cinnamon at all so I don’t even know if it is necessary. All 3 fondues received rave reviews and the chocolate kept its consistency nicely within the pots over a low tea light. For dipping- mini cheesecakes, angel food cake squares, potato chips, pretzels, graham cracker sticks, strawberries, bananas, Granny Smith apples, pineapple & dried apricots. - 04 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a very good fondue, but I do agree with the other reviews. You must at least double the amount of heavy cream, and add more liquor of your choice. We enjoyed this fondue and will make it again! - 22 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We burned the first two batches, and it seemed that we didn't have enough liquid. Then we added more creme and kahlua and it smoothed out perfectly, and tasted great. For people who are trying this for the first time, if it starts to clump add mas liquids pronto...otherwise pretty good. - 25 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
