Fast Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate fondue is the perfect choice when you need to make a delicious dessert in a hurry. Many dessert pots are microwave-safe, meaning you can cook and serve the fondue in the same dish. Instead of strawberries, you can use other firm fresh fruit in season, or canned fruit such as pineapple.
