Chocolate Fondue with Orange Essence
3 cups heavy whipping cream
¼ cup refined white sugar
½ teaspoon good vanilla
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
18 ounces dark chocolate, chopped or semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pre-heat the 360 Slow Cooker Base at a setting of two and one-half.
Pour the heavy whipping cream and sugar into the 360 2.3 Quart Casserole.
Stir to mix the ingredients then place the casserole on the stove over medium heat.
Bring the cream to a boil. Remove the casserole pan from the heat.
Stir in the vanilla and orange zest.
Add the chocolate. Stir gently until the chocolate melts and the sauce has a smooth consistency.
Transfer the pan to the 360 Slow Cooker Base. Allow the sauce to rest on the heat for 10-15 minutes. This will allow the sauce to thicken slightly.
Stir or whisk frequently.
Reduce the heat to a setting of two.
