Mexican Hot Chocolate Fondue

Lynnda Cloutier


Here smooth dark chocolate is mixed with some typical Mexican flavors, including the smoky kick of chipotle chile, just as in Aztec times. Strawberries,k pineapple and mango make excellent dippers, as do banana bread and cinnamon donut holes. You may even use chocolate chip cookies. Cinnamon sticks infuse the cream with a subtle yet distinctive flavor, but if you have none on hand, simply add 1 tsp. of ground cinnamon along with the espresso and chile powders.unknown source
