Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fondue

Here's a nice little three-ingredient chocolate fondue recipe that I just felt it was my civic duty to share.

This cute little ramekin is the perfect dipping receptacle if you don't have a fondue pot/feel like digging it out of the back of the cupboard.  Also perfectly acceptable, I might add, is to eat the stuff straight out of the saucepan.
Just keeping it real, people.


1 c. heavy cream (a half-pint container)
6 oz. milk chocolate, finely chopped (I used four 1.5 oz. Hershey's bars)
1/2 c. chunky peanut butter

In small pan over medium heat, heat the cream until it's simmering.  Dump in the chocolate and whisk until it's melted (takes just a minute).  Stir in the peanut butter until it's all blended together.  Serve with marshmallows, pretzels, and banana slices.  Serves 4 - 6.
And smile a big, gooey, chocolate teeth-covered smile, it's good.
Recipe from wonderful food writer Rick Rodgers' book Fondue.
