Chocolate Fondue

Homemade Chocolate Fondue

There’s no better way to perk up a dull day than to indulge in some good chocolate.

Mum bought me a adorable little tealight chocolate fondue set last Christmas and I haven’t had a chance to use it. Until a few days ago when I was just craving for chocolate.

It might not be much, this fondue set is more like a novelty really – it looks like a toy! or some aromatherapy kit. Anyhow, it didn’t stop me from chopping up some dark chocolate, heating it up in a pot and pouring it into this porcelain bowl to dip bananas with.

I know the proper fondue should have a more liquid-like chocolate ‘soup’ but I didn’t want to add any cream or butter so I just used pure chocolate. It’s quite okay; a little thick but hey I love it this way. Chocolate brings me immense joy. Haha. it’s good.

Maybe if I have the money, I’ll invest in a proper fondue pot someday. Saw a gorgeous one some time ago but guess how much it costs? $1049! It’s by Stelton and it’s damn sleek and beautiful. The whole set has this rotating round table contraption where all your cut up fruits or meats (if you’re doing a cheese fondue) will be placed and the guests won’t need to get up to reach for the other end – they can just rotate it! Amazing.

You know, all this hankering for ‘to-die-for’ kitchen gadgets and contraptions is just so making me want to work hard and save up for that fantastic kitchen of mine which will hold everything I need… i’ll be patient and continue persevering till it becomes actual reality! You bet I will! I ain’t giving up just yet…

u can try adding whipping cream to the chocolate also… it’s super fattening but it’s real nice. 🙂

Sweetilicious: ya! now it’s supposed to be good for your heart. I guess that’s good news! so let’s all tuck in and worry not about the pimples and what not. haha.

docile: i’m quite partial to Lindt’s 70 percent dark chocolate and Valrhona!, but usually when I’m baking, it’s the homebrand carried by Carrefour.

anon: yea, i was so tempted to. maybe i shall eh?

jadepearl: sinful IS the word, but I choose to play deaf to that word and amplify the DELICIOUS part :p
