This recipe from Epicurious for Chocolate and Coconut Cream Fondue sounds fantastic, and one that would be very romantic to do with your Valentine as well!

Chocolate and Coconut Cream Fondue
Bon Appétit December 2002

Yield: Makes 8 servings

Biscotti would be great for dipping, too.


1 15-ounce can sweetened cream of coconut (such as Coco López)
12 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract

Assorted fresh fruit (such as whole strawberries, 1-inch-thick slices banana, 1-inch cubes peeled cored pineapple, and tangerine segments)


Combine sweetened cream of coconut and 12 ounces chocolate in heavy large saucepan. Stir mixture over very low heat until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Stir in whipping cream and extract. (Fondue can be prepared 8 hours ahead. Cover; store at room temperature. Stir over low heat to rewarm before serving.)

Transfer mixture to fondue pot. Place over candle or canned heat burner. Serve with fruit for dipping.
