1 Heat the cream over medium heat in a small saucepan until tiny bubbles show and begins to lightly and slowly simmer.
2 Remove from heat, add the chocolate, and whisk until smooth and full incorporated.
3 Immediately transfer to a fondue pot heated at low or with a low flame, or serve straight from the pot.
Arrange the dip-ables on a platter or plates around the chocolate pot. Use a fondue fork, bamboo skewer, seafood fork, or salad fork to dip the fruit pieces and other dip-ables into the hot melted cream chocolate mixture. Eat immediately.
If the fondue begins to feel a little stiff, add a tablespoon of heavy cream and stir. It will help it go a little longer. Eventually, it will cook down though and you may need to start a new pot.
