About This Recipe
“I first tasted this fondue at a friend’s Christmas party about 8-9 years ago. I think just about everyone left that party with a copy of the recipe! I have served this at my own parties many times with great success. I enjoy serving this with strawberries, fresh pineapple chunks, cantaloupe, bananas, and sponge cake as the dippers. This makes enough fondue to partly fill a medium-sized crockpot.”
1 (12ounce) packages semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (14ounce) packages caramels, unwrapped
1 (12ounce) cans evaporated milk
1/2 cupsweet unsalted butter
1/2 cup raspberry preserves or 1/2 cupjam
sponge cakes orpoundcake, for dipping
chunks fresh fruit, for dipping
In a 2-quart saucepan, combine chocolate chips, caramels, milk, butter, raspberry jam.
Cook over low heat, stirring often, until melted and smooth- this may take a while, about 20-30 minutes (do not be tempted to rush things by raising the heat or your fondue will burn).
When everything has melted together, pour into a either a fondue pot or a crockpot set on low heat.
Serve along with a platter of bite-sized pieces of sponge cake, pound cake, and fresh fruit and some fondue forks or skewers to dip into the fondue.
“I served this at the party and did get good reviews. I, however, thought it was a bit too sweet with the raspberry jam.”
