Midwinter fondue


Strawberries in chocolate is not what I expected to be eating for dessert tonight, but arriving home from a working Saturday I found that David had not only whipped up a delicious red Thai vegetable curry, but had also managed to work a trip to the Galleries Lafayette into his day, and had as his bounty a jar of chocolate cinnamon fondue in a nifty heat-retaining stoneware jar, waiting to be gently heated to deliquescence. For less perfect nights when such treasures are not to be had, the following will also do.

Chocolate cinnamon fondue

  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, broken into small pieces
  • Splash of vanilla extract

Heat the cream in a small heavy saucepan until just boiling, then add the other ingredients and stir until the chocolate has melted. Serve, ideally, with strawberries.
