Divinely rich and silky smooth, the Classic Chocolate Fondue has the most balanced chocolate flavour, which appeals to almost everybody. Neither too sweet nor bitter, this combination of molten dark chocolate with buttery sauce and fresh cream just takes you to seventh heaven when enjoyed with chewy marshmallows, pieces of vanilla sponge cake or even fruits. Some people like to make it even richer by using creamy milk chocolate and brandy, but remember that might get too rich for some!

Can this recipe be served as a dip? That is, be prepared prior and served after a few hours, at room temperature or cooled?

   Hi Tanvi, Yes it can be served as a dip, you can prepare it in advance but the consistency will get thicker so adjust it by adding little milk and cooking it for a minute or so and mixing it all the time...
