1. Place a small pot onto the stovetop, and add about 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) of water. Bring to light boil, then lower the heat to maintain a slight simmer. Do this before you place your bowl with the chocolate ingredients on top
2. Weigh all your ingredients. Add all the ingredients to a bowl that will fit snugly over the pot with simmering water (a bain marie/double boiler). NOTE: use cocoa powder or if using a solid block of cocoa, grate or cut into small chunks (this makes it easier to melt the solid cocoa at a lower temperature without burning your cocoa). Place on top of the pot with the simmering water
3. Using a spatula or whisk, slowly and constantly stir until all the ingredients are melted and well combined. If mixture seems to be getting too hot, remove the bowl from the heat, place on counter and continue stirring/whisking until everything is melted and you have a rich glossy mixture
6. Cubes of
Naked Vanilla Sponge Cake (sugar free, grain free and keto) – this cake is recommended because it has a firmer and better consistency when dipped into the chocolate fondue. ENJOY!
Please be aware that although the chocolate fondue has an amazing 7:1 macronutrient ratio per serving, and all the accompaniment ingredients are acceptable, healthy fruit or cake, you do have to be conscious of the quantity you choose to consume because total and net carbs add up quickly. This chocolate fondue can be enjoyed as a special treat after a carefully considered low total carb entrée. A keto lifestyle does not mean depriving yourself of the wonderful variety of foods available to you, but it does mean being conscientious and limiting yourself and staying within the target parameters that fit your overall goal and metabolic tolerance.
Lastly, if you are making this for just two people, or if you do not use up all the chocolate fondue, place the extra into a freezer safe air tight container (I prefer using glass containers with snap plastic lids) and freeze until you can use this amazing chocolate fondue mix again.
