The chocolate fondue stays true to the flavor of the unmelted chocolate; therefore, we suggest using a chocolate you like straight from the package. Milk chocolate will produce a mild and sweet fondue, semisweet chocolate will bring a deeper and more bitter flavor to the fondue, and bittersweet chocolate will present a pronounced bitter and even slightly acidic flavor. If you?d like just a touch of bitterness in the fondue, you may combine milk and semisweet or bittersweet chocolates. We recommend about 3/4 cup bread, cake, or fruit per person. The fruit may be prepared up to 4 hours and the bread and cake up to 1 hour ahead of time. You will need a real fondue pot (with heat source) to keep the chocolate mixture warm and fluid.
1. Prepare the accompaniments and set them aside.
2. FOR THE FONDUE: Place the chocolate in a medium bowl. Bring the cream and salt to a boil in a small saucepan and pour the hot cream over the chocolate. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the chocolate to soften for 3 minutes. Whisk the chocolate until smooth, then add the corn syrup and whisk to incorporate. Transfer the mixture to a fondue pot, warm the pot over the Sterno flame for 5 minutes, and serve immediately with the desired accompaniments.
