BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE-ORANGE FONDUE
Grand Marnier and grated orange peel add a touch of elegance to this
simple indulgence. Prepare the fondue just before serving, and keep
it warm while dipping so that it will remain smooth. Use a
traditional fondue pot, or place the pan of the fondue on an electric
hot plate. Either way, be sure the heat is low; too much heat will
cause the chocolate to burn. Angel food cake, pound cake and a
variety of fresh and dried fruits make great accompaniments.
* 1/3 cup whipping cream
* 1 1/2 teaspoons (packed) grated orange peel
* 8 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate,
* 3 tablespoons Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
* 8 1-inch pieces pound cake
* 8 1-inch pieces angel food cake
* 8 fresh strawberries, hulled
* 2 kiwis, peeled, each cut into 4 rounds
* 1 small pear, cored, cut into 1-inch pieces
* 1 large banana, cut into 8 rounds
* 1 orange, peel and white pith removed, cut into sections
* 8 dried Calimyrna figs
* 8 dried apricot halves
Bring whipping cream and grated orange peel to simmer in heavy medium
saucepan. Reduce heat to low. Add chopped chocolate and 1 tablespoon
Grand Marnier; whisk until mixture is smooth. Remove fondue from heat
and blend in remaining
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier.
Transfer fondue to fondue pot. Place over candle or canned heat
burner. Serve with cake pieces and fruit for dipping.
