Mouthwatering Mint Chocolate Fondue Recipe

chocolate fondueYou would be hard pressed to find a more festive food than fondue. Warm, rich, and perfectly paired with so many different items for dipping, it's one divine dish ... especially when it's chocolate.

Chocolate fondue is a perfect dessert for parties or intimate gatherings. Served with fruit, cake, cookies, marshmallows and more, it's sure to please everyone. There are a host of different varieties, but this mint chocolate version from the restaurant king of fondue, The Melting Pot, is by far my favorite. It's rich and decadent with just a hint of mint, and it's incredibly easy to make too. Win. Win. Note: It does contain some liqueur, so if you're serving it to children you may want to make two batches and leave that out of theirs.

The Melting Pot’s Chocolate Mint Fondue
12 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
½ cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons crème de menthe or mint chocolate liqueur
Combine the chocolate and cream in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water.
Heat until the chocolate is melted, stirring constantly; or combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 to 45 seconds. Be careful not to let the chocolate burn.
Pour into a warm fondue pot. Add the liqueur and stir gently to combine. Keep fondue warm over low heat. 
Serves 4 to 6.

    mmmhhhh. I Love The melting pot! This looks like an easy recipe. Only problem is I dont own a fondue pot, too keep it warm. Any other suggestions for keeping the chocolate melted?
