Serving Tips

You can serve this chocolate fondue dessert recipe in your cooking pot right away, but be alert it should not burn your table! Nevertheless, if you wish to make things different and fancier, pour the hot chocolate into a fondue bowl and serve it right away.

In place of fondue forks you can also use regular forks, or if you prefer, short skewers as well. But just make sure you handle it carefully.
