Chocolate Fruit Fondue

Prep: 5 minutes Cook: 10 minutes

Serves:Serves 2

A big favorite with children and adults alike. I have an old fondue pot from the 70's that I still use to heat the chocolate sauce and keep it warm.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 6 ounce can apple juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups mixed chunked fresh fruit

Directions

Combine cocoa powder and cornstarch or arrowroot in a small saucepan. Gradually add water to make a smooth paste. Stir in apple juice concentrate. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Stir in vanilla. Place in a fondue pot or chafing dish to keep warm for dipping. Dip pieces of fresh fruit into warm sauce. Use assorted fresh fruits cut into chunks, such as bananas, apples, pineapple, honeydew melon, or cantaloupe.

HELPFUL HINTS: Substitute unsweetened orange or pineapple juice for the apple juice.
