Recipe for :

Chocolate Fondue

This recipe comes from the the Bitchin Kitchen web site which is run by Faith Heinauer. This is what she said in describing Bitchin Kitchen:

" I grew up in a household that loved not only food, but also the creative process of cooking and entertaining. My father is a professional chef and my mother was a former pastry chef. After earning my degree in hotel and restaurant management, I joined my father's catering business and started teaching cooking classes. Growing up in the restaurant scene offers a lot of culinary observations; add my knack for experimenting in the kitchen, and you've got my collection of recipes and tricks of the trade. So, if you want to talk food, get a great recipe or hear the latest culinary scoop, you're at the right place!"

"A sweet and sublime way to end a meal!"


1 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate, chopped


  • Sift the cocoa powder into a mixing bowl, and set aside.
  • In a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the water, sugar, and corn syrup for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Reduce the heat to low, and stir in the heavy cream.
  • Pour the cocoa powder into the mixture and blend with a whisk until smooth.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the chopped chocolate.
  • Pour into a fondue pot and keep warm.
