Boozy ganache fondue with Autumn Fruits
When the temperature starts to drop a little, there is something very reassuring about sitting down to a whole pot of melted chocolate armed with some autumnal fruit and tiny forks! Surround that with beautiful cheeses and other snacks and you have the ultimate comfort-food platter.
Heat cream in a saucepan over low-medium heat. When the cream feels hot to the touch, reduce heat to low, and add chocolate. Whisk the chocolate into the cream until melted and smooth, then stir through liqueur of your choice.
Pour into your serving bowl or fondue pot and arrange your sliced fruit and other dipping items around it. Get dippy with it!
For the ganache:
200g good-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
200g good-quality milk chocolate, finely chopped
2 Tbsp liqueur of choice (Cointreau, Baileys, brandy)
Sliced fruits such as apples, pears, mandarins, grapes, kiwifruit, banana (or whatever is in season!)
Mini toasts, hazelnuts, biscotti, sliced dried figs
