Yield:
about 1 1/4 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 11.5 ounce package milk chocolate pieces

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter

  • Milk

  • Dippers: Star fruit (carambola) slices, kumquats, orange sections, whole strawberries, pear slices, banana slices, and/or apple chunks; angel cake or pound cake cubes; assorted cookies; marshmallows

Directions

  1. In a heavy small saucepan (or the top of a double boiler placed over gently simmering water), combine chocolate pieces and the 1/4 cup milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in peanut butter. Cook and stir until heated through. Stir in additional milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.

  2. Pour mixture into a fondue pot; keep warm over a fondue burner. Serve with dippers. (Fondue will thicken as it stands. Stir in additional milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.)

Chocolate SMores Fondue:

Prepare as directed in step 1, except omit peanut butter. Pour mixture into a fondue pot; keep warm over a fondue burner. Add 1 tablespoon marshmallow creme to the center; do not stir. Slowly pour 1 tablespoon rum into fondue pot. Ignite rum by touching lighted match to edge of pot. (Cooking or flambéing with an open flame should be done with great care. It will take about 11/2 minutes for the flame to burn down.) After the flame burns down, carefully swirl the mixture. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs over the top; do not stir.

Prepare as directed in step 1, except omit peanut butter. Stir in 2 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping. Cook and stir until heated through.
