Baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue

This week for our Baked group we made fondue. It is one of my favorite things to make. I didn't have a good feeling about this fondue as it started to get very think and hard.

 I successfully created frosting!! So I decided to add lots more cream. In fact in the end I added about 1/2 cup per a half batch of fondue. Lots more liquid!!

We all loved it. Our favorite dipper was the cutie because they were tart against the sweet fondue. A close second choice was the pretzels.

8 ounces good quality milk chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups smooth peanut butter

Place the milk chocolate in the top of a double boiler and stir occasionally until it is completely melted and smooth. Add the peanut butter and heavy cream and stir until combined.
Transfer the mixture to your favorite fondue pot and keep it warm. Serve with your favorite dipping items.

I halved the recipe and ended up adding 1/2 cup more liquid to make it a smooth fondue.
