This is an elegant treat for special occasions or to dress up an outdoor banquet table.
16 ounces chocolate (milk, dark or semisweet) broken into pieces
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 cup caramel topping
3 Tablespoons hazelnut syrup or favorite liqueur
Place all ingredients in a ceramic or stainless-steel fondue pot over low heat. Stir constantly until mixture is melted and smooth. Do not allow to bubble.
Arrange an assortment of bite-size dipping foods on a large tray near or around the fondue pot (not too close to the source of heat). Some great dipping suggestions include pound cake, marshmallows, strawberries, sliced bananas, apples, grapes, cherries, pineapples, and oranges.
Spear with fondue forks or wooden skewers, dip, swirl and eat.
