Add some chocolate flair to your next summer barbeque with s'mores fondue! Rob Sanchez, co-owner of The Melting Pot in San Mateo shares this crowd-pleasing recipe.

Recipe: S'mores Fondue

  • 8 oz milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons marshmallow crème
  • 2 tablespoons Bacardi 151 rum
  • 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs

Serves 4 to 6

Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water, stirring constantly; or place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 to 45 seconds. Be careful not to let the chocolate burn. Pour into a warm fondue pot. Spoon the marshmallow crème into the center of the chocolate. Do not stir. Add the rum to the pot and ignite carefully, using a long wooden match or lighter. Allow the flame to burn out and stir gently to combine. Sprinkle with the graham cracker crumbs. Keep fondue warm over low heat.
