6 oz semi sweet chocolate
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon rum
In the microwave or double boiler**, heat all ingredients until the chocolate is soft and melted. Remove from heat and allow to sit about 2 minutes. Stir to form a thick sauce. Decant into a bowl or a small fondue pot with a candle beneath to keep warm. Serve immediately with chunks of banana, strawberries, marshmallow, pineapple chunks, pound cake etc. When you near the bottom of the pot, take care as the chocolate will be positively molten.
*A good variation is to use flavored chocolate bars. I just used two of the signature bars from NYC's Chocolate Bar.
**If you have a large fondue pot with a good heat source (i.e. a sterno or fondue fuel burner rather than just a candle) you can do this in your fondue pot. It is slightly faster via stove top or microwave though.
