Mexican Hot Chocolate Fondue




  1. In a bowl, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch to blend.

  2. Slowly whisk in the cream; then the milk, coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla.

  3. Pour the mixture into a stainless steel saucepan and gently bring it to a boil.

  4. Cook, whisking, until thickened, about 4 minutes.

  5. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the chocolate and butter until melted.

  6. Using a fine-meshed sieve over a large bowl, strain the chocolate mixture and discard the solids.

  7. Pour into a warmed fondue pot and serve with assorted dippers and fondue forks.
