Chocolate Fondue!

My friend, Mum and I made a chocolate fondue today. We used the Kraft recipe. The only chocolate I had in the cupboard was kinda weird, cause it had cocoa nib things in it. We also had to use a bit of white chocolate which wasn’t ideal! I think I need to stock up on my baking ingredients. I picked this recipe because there were only two ingredients, chocolate and condensed milk. Seems simple doesn’t it! As we started to heat the mixture up in the pan it became thick and dough-like, it looked like brownie dough!!! When my Mum went away I decided to experiment. Not a good idea because I get pretty crazy with my baking! After adding almond extract, vanilla bean paste, peppermint extract and blue food colouring it began to look very strange! The blue food colouring doesn’t work with chocolate, it stayed brown, if you were wondering. When Mum came back she just raised her eyebrows, oops. Since it was still lumpy I suggested we added some normal milk (semi-skimmed), this really helped and it began to look like chocolate fondue. My brother, his friend, my friend and I, my other brother and my Mum all tried the fondue. We dipped it with banana, apple and melon on skewers. It was lovely and rich but you didn’t need much! Or I didn’t, my brother scraped the pot clean! Very messy though! Think I might try a recipe with more ingredients next time, and less ingredients of my own!!!
