Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Using a wet pastry brush, wash down the side of the saucepan to remove any sugar crystals. Cook over moderately high heat until an amber caramel forms, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in all of the remaining ingredients. Return the saucepan to the heat and cook for 1 minute, stirring until the caramel is smooth. Transfer the caramel to a bowl and let cool for about 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.


Make Ahead

The fondue can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Serve With

Sliced apples, pears, bananas, dried figs, cubes of pound cake, gingersnaps and graham crackers, for dipping.
