For a super quick and easy – and really instant if you have some ganache in your refrigerator or freezer – low sugar, gluten free, fruit forward dessert for one or two, think Chocolate Fondue.
Ganache is a staple recipe in every baker’s or confectioner’s kitchen. Traditionally made from two basic ingredients – premium dark chocolate and cream – a basic ganache pouring glaze can be altered to make a thick icing, whipped cake filling, or a firm filling for chocolate truffles.
Adding fruit puree, in the place of some or all of the milk or cream, adds flavor as well as changing the consistency. Link to one or more of the blog posts for ganache glaze.
Dip fruit in the fondue, such as strawberries, raspberries, banana chunks, grapes, kumquats, citrus sections, and dried fruit. Of course, you can dip cubes of cake or cookies, pretzels or even potato chips, but fruit is healthier.
The most time consuming part might just be finding a fondue pot, if that’s what you want to use. Chains like JC Penny and Bed Bath and Beyond sell them, and you can order a red one like this fondue pot and forks set online.
