Happy Monday! Hosting a Holiday get together this season? I not only have you food, but your entertainment, as well! Fondue party! The folks at Vitamix (we are friends now, after all — remember the Berry Kissed Sorbet?) provided this TOP SECRET recipe for fondue — with an extra kick – espresso! For those who like to enjoy the *other* kinda kick, it was recommended to add some brandy, as needed.
Chocolate Espresso Fondue
Yield: 3 cups
Speed: Variable 1-10, High
Time: 4 to 5 minutes
- ½ cup water
- 1 to 1 ½ cups heavy cream
- 1 Tablespoon instant espresso powder or instant coffee
- 3 Tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
- 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
Select Variable 1. Turn on machine and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High, using tamper as needed to keep the mixture flowing. Blend for 3 to 4 minutes or until melted and smooth. Pour into fondue pot and serve.
For Dippers: Get creative! Some ideas – Pretzel sticks, strawberries, ladyfingers, fresh pineapple chunks, cubes of pound cake, cubes of angel food cake, marshmallows
Now if you’ll excuse me I’ll be trying to locate a straw. Who needs dippers, anyway?
