I’m getting ready to go to Florida for a few days, but I feel like if I don’t put something up before I go my friend Alyssa will get on my case, so here’s a quick fondue that can literally be put together in half an hour. If you tag team it with someone (someone chops up your fruit or whatever while the other makes the chocalate) it can be done even faster.
-1/2 bag white chocolate chips
-1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
-Small can evaporated milk, about 2 Tb (rock the skim and you can feel a little less guilty about eating so much chocolate)
-Whatever you want to dip (my fav’s are fresh fruit, pound cake, and marshmallows)
How much chocolate you use depends on how big your fondue pot is. As you can see in the pic, mine splits halfway down, so it isn’t huge. The first thing I did was pour in about 1/2 a cup of white chocalate chips and got the flame going. If you have never made fondue before it is important to know that patience is key! A big nasty flame is only going to burn the chocolate, so take it easy. Next, pour in about a tablespoon of the evaporated milk, followed by all of the vanilla. As the chocolate begins to melt you can add the rest of the evaporated milk (if you do it all at once the mixture will be too thin and easy to spill). Now just stir, stir, stir…stir. I’ve always found that continuously stirring will keep the chocolate from burning and will give you a nice even melt. Once things really get melted you will probably have to pour in more chips. Just keep stirring, add more milk if the mixture is too thick. Once you get it to where you like, start dipping!
