I am posting this dark chocolate raspberry fondue recipe in honor of an upcoming event. You may choose to make this fondue at home (it’s so easy and your hoiday guests will love it). Or perhaps stop into The Melting Pot on Christmas Eve and your tip will be donated to a great cause.
On Christmas Eve, two Melting Pot restaurants—White Plains in Westchester County and Darien in Fairfield County—are going to donate their wages/tips to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. They will also hold a holiday gift raffle on the same day with all proceeds going to the hospital.
The raffle donations and the staff’s willingness to donate their wages/tips to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is what the true spirit of the holiday season is all about—which is giving to others and helping those in need.
Dark Chocolate Raspberry Fondue
12 ounces of dark chocolate, finely chopped
¼ cup of heavy cream
3 tablespoons of raspberry liqueur
Make the fondue
Combine the chocolate and cream in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water. Heat until the chocolate is melted, stirring constantly; or combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 to 45 seconds. Be careful not to let the chocolate burn. Pour into a warm fondue pot. Drizzle with the liqueur. Keep fondue warm over low heat.
Recommended dipping accompaniments: Rice crispy treats, pound cake, brownie bites , strawberries, raspberries, bananas, cheesecake and marshmallows.
