Swiss Chocolate Fondue

The recipe for ‘Fondue’ came from Switzerland. The name is French but the dish originated in ‘Switzerland’. The Swiss are fond of all fondues but especially of cheese fondue, which is had with crusty bread especially in the winters to keep off the cold. Many explanations was given for why a French name was given for a Swiss dish have been discussed. Various people have come up with different explanations. The chefs have their own glossary which says Fondue means simply ‘to melt’ in French..Seems the Swiss are very poor at naming their dishes and only good at making the finest and best cheese in the world. Initially i want to try swiss cheese fondue, but once i saw the chocolate fondue i really got hooked with this fondue and tried out at home..We had with marshmallows, u can serve very well with any sort of fruits.We just enjoyed this chocolate fondue sterday...Am sending this swiss chocolate fondue to AWED-Swiss guest hosted by Sweatha, event by DK..



2cups Chocolate pieces (chopped roughly)
1/2cup Cream
1tbsp Vanilla Essence

Melt the chocolate pieces along with the cream and vanilla essence in thick bottomed pan over low hear stirring continuously till it comes to a boil and then reduce the flame and keep stirring for another 5 minutes. Then remove the pan from the flame and allow the mixture to cool a bit, then pour it into a fondue pot or ceramic dish and serve.

Serve with any sort of fruit pieces or marshmallows!!!
