Milk chocolate, milk, and peanut butter make a simple sauce that's great to serve for dessert or as a sweet appetizer with fresh fruit or cake cubes.

Ingredients

  • 1 11 1/2 - ounce package milk chocolate pieces
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter
  • Milk
  • Assorted fruits (such as star fruit or carambola slices, orange sections, whole strawberries, pear slices, banana slices, apple slices)
  • Angel-food cake or pound cake cubes
  • Marshmallows

Directions

  1. In the top of a double boiler placed over gently simmering water, or in heavy small saucepan, combine the chocolate pieces and 1/4 cup milk. Heat, stirring constantly, over low heat until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in the peanut butter. Cook and stir until heated through. Stir in additional milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.
  2. Pour mixture into a fondue pot; place over fondue burner set on low. With fondue forks or long skewers, dip fruit dippers, cake cubes and/or marshmallows into chocolate mixture. (Will hold up to 1 hour on low. If mixture gets too thick, add milk 1 tablespoon at a time.) Makes 5 (1/4-cup) servings.
