  Chocolate Fondue: The Chocolate 'Pool' of Love 

Hi everybody :)
Bring your favorite chocolate dessert to Roxana’s Home Baking #chocolateparty and win amazing prizes from OXO, Calphalon, Keurig, Imperial Sugar, Honey Ridge Farms and Land O’ Lakes® Butter.

Since February is the shortest month of the year, we're taking our trip to 'Chocolate Land' a little earlier this time around. Hold on tight and buckle-up, have I got a chocolate treat for you! Today we're going for a dip in the chocolate 'pool' of love. 

If you're just tune in to my blog, every month I post at least 2 recipes dealing with chocolate, from the creamy white to the deepest dark that promise to fulfill  your chocolate fantasy  delight. If you missed a trip, don't worry there still time to play catch-up; just look under the Chocolate Label to reach your chocolate destination. But to ensure you won't have that problem, subscribe now and follow me. I will take you on an trip you won't soon forget :)
Next stop destination: Chocolate Fondue... let's get it started.  

Chocolate Fondue
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (mix with vanilla bean paste)

In heavy saucepan, over medium heat, melt chocolate chips and butter with EAGLE BRAND® and water. 
Cook and stir constantly until thickened, about 5 minutes.(Don't worry if it don't look that thick at first it will thicken the longer it sit.) Remove from heat. Add vanilla. (I added the vanilla too soon, then add a little more later)
Serve warm as a fruit and cookie/cracker dipping sauce or drizzle over ice cream or cake. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.

What I Did and/or Think:
The only thing I did was add the vanilla too soon and added more later. I used pineapple chunks, strawberries, bananas, graham crackers, Chewy Quadrupled Chocolate Cookies and
Pound Cake Cookies as dippers, but the possibilities are endless. 

I'm sure you can make this with other white chocolate and milk chocolate, but I haven't tried it yet but I will be testing it out soon :)
The Taste: It WAS AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS!! Very thick, rich, and chocolatey good. Yes! It is an A.G.R. ladies. (Another Great REPEAT).

Here's a strawberry for you :) until next trip...
