In this episode Candice shows you a quick and easy recipe to make Vegan Chocolate Fondue right in your own home. This is a perfect recipe for Valentine's Day, or for any other day you want to make a little more special than usual. The best things about this recipe at that it consists of just 2 ingredients and takes very little time to make, and also that one of those ingredients is chocolate.
The first step to make this delicious Vegan Chocolate Fondue will be to load up a medium sized glass bowl with 2 cups of chocolate chips. Put your bowl in the microwave for exactly 30 seconds. Do not make the mistake of thinking 30 seconds won't be enough, we are not looking for a total meltdown just yet. When selecting your chocolate chips get dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips as we will be transforming them into milk chocolate with our coconut milk.
After heating your chocolate chips up in the microwave for 30 seconds pull them out and add in your coconut milk. This coconut milk needs to come from a can that was refrigerated upside down overnight so that all of the watery liquid is separated from the creamy part of the coconut milk. You will open up the end of the can you know has that extra liquid and drain it out. Add the remaining coconut from the can directly to your chocolate chips and cook it in 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until you feel confident your chocolate is fully melted. Candice's batch took a total of 2 minutes in 30 second intervals. It is recommended after fully melting that you give your chocolate a good whisking to get that velvety, creamy consistency chocolate fondue is known for.
Transfer the contents of your glass bowl into a fondue pot and carefully light the burner underneath to ensure it stays warm. If you do not have a fondue pot don't fret, many pots make perfect fondue pots and there are tons of videos on YouTube to help you turn your ordinary pot into a great fondue pot.
To finish off this recipe you need to get together all the ingredients you think will be good dipped into your vegan chocolate fondue. Candice played a little game called "What tastes good dipped in Chocolate Fondue?" and it is still unclear whether she won or lost but she certainly did help up narrow down our focus and also walked away with the knowledge that dipping wieners in chocolate is a bad idea. Recommended dipping ingredients are strawberries, pineapples, cheesecake bites, marshmallows, and really anything else you think might be good.
