Fusion Chocolate Fondue
Sweet, sour, spicy, and bitter come together in
this decadent chocolate fondue recipe.
- 8 ounces semisweet chocolate
- 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon five-spice powder
- 1 ½ tablespoons cognac, or to taste
- 2 tablespoons sour cream
- Biscotti pieces (raspberry is good), Ladyfingers, or pound cake
Coarsely chop the chocolate. If you have a double
boiler, melt the chocolate, whipping cream and sugar in the top
half of the boiler. If not, half-fill a heavy saucepan with water
and heat until barely simmering. Place the chocolate, whipping
cream and sugar in a metal bowl over the saucepan, making sure the
bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the simmering water. Turn the heat
down to low and melt the chocolate, stirring constantly and making
sure the chocolate doesn't burn.
Pour the mixture into a fondue pot and stir in the cinnamon, chili
powder, five-spice powder, and finally the Cognac. Keep the fondue
warm on low heat. Swirl in the sour cream just before serving.
Serves 4 to 6.
