My family and I chose the Donut Muffins recipe for our first test-drive. Wow! It should come with a warning. Is it a muffin or is a a donut? It is a scrumptious chocolate chip masterpiece! It was awesome! Donut Muffins yields a dozen. And, I plan on baking with my mini-muffin pans the next go around in order to make these tasty treats last longer or I could bake up two dozen.

What's more exciting than having a Snickerdoodle Chip Biscotti or Ginger Muffins with a nice cup of hot brewed coffee? Grandparents can make a visit more memorable by having the kids help whip up a batch of Chocolate-Dipped Pretzels, Chocolate Banana Pops or Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons. Oh, don't forget the Strawberry Chip "Moo-thie" to make the day complete! Whatever the occasion 125 Best Chocolate Chip Recipes by Julie Hasson could help save the day!

Chocolate Fondue is not an adults only recipe. It can be a delightful dessert for a child's birthday party or sleepover with adult supervision.

MAKES ABOUT 6 SERVINGS
Chocolate fondue is a very elegant dessert. It is so easy to make that you shouldn’t let others know exactly how easy. It is a very special dessert for a child’s birthday when made without the liqueur; you can substitute decaf coffee instead.


Tips
Leftover fondue can be refrigerated overnight. Warm in microwave before serving.
Try to use a fondue pot with a tea light that is made for chocolate fondue so that the chocolate won’t burn.


Ceramic fondue pot or medium ceramic dish


3⁄4 cup whipping (35%) cream 175 mL
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 250 mL
2 tbsp liqueur such as hazelnut 25 mL
or Galliano

Suggested Dipping Items
Cubes of loaf or pound cake
Strawberries
Banana chunks
Orange segments
Pretzels
Large marshmallows
Small cookies
Dried fruit


1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine cream and chocolate chips. Microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate is shiny and almost melted. Stir until smooth.

2. Whisk liqueur into chocolate mixture. Transfer to fondue pot.


3. Arrange dipping items on a platter and serve.
