The childhood pleasure of dipping a finger into melted chocolate grows up with this sinfully rich dessert. This sensuous, but spirited fondue will cling to pound cake cubes, pieces of freshly cut fruit, or a dipping finger.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, broken into small pieces
  • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, broken into small pieces
  • ¼ cup lightly salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • ¼ cup Scotch whisky (or more to taste, if desired)
  • Pound or angel food cake, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Fresh whole strawberries, hulled; fresh pineapple, cut into small wedges; and other fresh fruit, as desired


  • Place sugar and water in a small nonaluminum saucepan.
  • Cook over low heat until mixture simmers; cover and simmer 5 minutes.

  • Melt semisweet and unsweetened chocolates with butter and cream using Double-Boiler Method.
