Dolce by Beka– an elegant, yet simple foundue set,makes a beautiful addition to the kitchen, compact and easy to store as well. But you may want to keep this somewhere in the open as a decorative item. It is also dishwasher safe and comes with a candle to prevent the chocolate from scorching. Just the right size for a fondue for 4 and if you want to make a luscious fondue for Valentine’s Day, this recipe works perfectly in the Dolce  fondue set.

    • Nils: Thanks for stopping by. You add in cream to the melted chocolate as directed in recipe in second sentence ( Then add in the cream) and stir it gently into the mixture. It is yummy! This is a great apres ski or Holiday appetizer or fun snack to make at home for friends, family and of course, yourself!
