INGREDIENTS:

For the Fondue:

  • 2 cups/473 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 10 ounces/300 g good-quality semisweet chocolate, chopped

Accompaniments:

  • One 1-pound/454-g basket fresh strawberries with stems, halved lengthwise
  • One 6-ounce/170-g basket fresh blackberries
  • 2 bananas, peeled and cut crosswise into thick rounds
  • 2 nectarines, pitted, cut into wedges
  • 2 apricots, pitted, cut into wedges
  • 4 almond biscotti

PREPARATION:

  1. Heat the cream in a heavy medium sauce pan over medium heat until it simmers. Decrease the heat to low. Add the chocolate to the cream and stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.
  2. Once the mixture is smooth, pour it into a fondue pot and place it over a canned heat burner to keep it warm. Arrange the fruit and biscotti on a platter and serve with the fondue, allowing diners to skewer the fruit with a fork and dip the fruit and biscotti into the chocolate fondue.
