DYLAN LAUREN'S EASY CHOCOLATE FONDUE

Dylan Lauren is the daughter of fashion guru Ralph Lauren.  She is highly successful on her own with her Dylan's Candy Bar Empire!  She opened her flagship Manhattan store in 2001 and now has other stores across the country.  This is her rich chocolate fondue recipe.

1 1/4 cups heavy cream
16-oz good quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 tbsp vanilla extract

Heat the cream in a small heavy saucepan over moderate heat until it just barely simmers; add the chocolate and let stand for 2 minutes.

Pour the vanilla extract into the mixture and whisk until smooth.

Serve immediately; she recommends serving with bite-size chunks of good quality pound cake.

Variations:
Red Hot: Add 1 tbsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp chili powder

Nutty: Stir in a handful of chopped nuts or 2/3 cup creamy peanut butter (personally, I like with chunky pb)

Charged Up: Pour in 1/2 cup hot brewed coffee or espresso.
