Individual Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate fountains might be all the rage in party equipment, but you don't need one to dip fruit, pretzels, or cookies into melted chocolate. You don't even need a fondue pot.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dried apricots (about 7)

  • 1 ounce chopped bittersweet chocolate

Directions

Arrange fruit on a plate that can hold the chocolate cup. Put 1 ounce chopped chocolate in a small ramekin or glass custard cup. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Stir. Even if it doesn't look melted, it will be. Be careful not to scorch! Serve with a large toothpick and dip.

Options: You can replace dried apricots with 3 dried peaches, 3 dried figs, 28 dried cherries, or anything that a toothpick will hold to dip.
