Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate fondue is the perfect ending to any meal.  What's not to love about fruit dipped in chocolate? Try it soon,  maybe after a cheese fondue meal!

1/2 cup heavy cream                                                         
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate  chips
 (I really love the Ghirardelli 60%
   Bittersweet Chocolate chips)
1 t. vanilla

Heat the heavy cream in the microwave for about 1 minute, or until it comes to a boil.  Add the chocolate chips & stir until the chips are melted. 
Put the mixture in a fondue pot & keep warm.
Serve with an assortment of fresh fruit, such as pineapple, strawberries, raspberries, apples, bananas, etc.   Of course, you can always add cubed pound cake, angel food cake, pretzels, graham crackers & marshmallows, too!!
