Amidst the midterms and stress, it was time to participate in some very much needed girl time so I invited my lovelies for some awesome chocolate fondue with apples, marshmallows, bananas...that sounds so girly, right? Well, it was delicious! It's always fun and relaxing to visit with each other ... and eat fondue.
Fondue pot or a double boiler
2 cups of water
1 bag baker's chocolate (dark or milk on preference)
2 pieces of almond bark
1. Melt in a double boiler. Place water in sauce pan or lower boiler over low heat. Place cut pieces of chocolate (or chocolate chips) on top boiler or in a light, non plastic bowl. The steam will slowly cook the chocolate above.
2. Stirring constantly, move the chocolate around until it begins to melt. Because chocolate is very easily scalded, be careful not to leave the room or stop stirring for too long.
3. Continue stirring until the chocolate has fully melted. Adjust the heat on the stove if you believe the chocolate is melting too quickly. The whole process should take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.
4. Use for recipe for dipping, dressing, or incorporating into another recipe. Again, take care not to accidentally introduce droplets of water to the chocolate with the stirring implement.
