Lighter Chocolate Fondue (Or Ganache)
25 mins (prep 15, cooking 10)
13 ingredients

This is an amazingly dark, rich and sinful fondue with a lot less fat. Make sure to use the best quality chocolate you can get your hands on, since that is your main flavor here. I have listed the things we like to dip in our fondue; other ideas are cherries, dried apricots, walnut halves, marshmallows or anything else that sounds good to you! This could also be used as a ganache. I always wondered if I could make a lower fat ganache without whipping cream, and here it is (and surprisingly, it takes almost the same)! Use to frost cupcakes or fill cakes. Slightly adapted recipe from Ellie Krieger's Healthy Appetite on Food Network.
