1/2 cup plus 5 Tbsp heavy cream
5 oz 62% Scharffen Berger (premium semi-sweet chocolate)
chopped Pound cake and fruit (ex. bananas, apples, strawberries, plums), cut into bite sized pieces

Method:

Firstly, sift the cocoa into mixing bowl and set aside.Then, place the water, sugar, and corn syrup into a pot and bring to boil.

Allow the mixture to simmer for 10-15 minutes until sugar solution has reduced by about 30%. Pour the cocoa powder a little bit at a time into the solution and blend with a whisk until nice and smooth.

Next, return the chocolate mixture to the stove and continue cooking over medium heat. Add the heavy cream, bring it to a boil and allow to simmer for five minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in your chopped chocolate. Pour it all into a ceramic fondue pot or one appropriate and keep warm until ready to serve.
