The Melting Pot Bananas Foster Fondue

 One of my favorite Southern desserts is Bananas Foster so when I came across this recipe in my Melting Pot cookbook I knew I wanted to try it! So today I invited my friend, Molly over and after a healthy lunch of deli sandwiches we indulged in this chocolate caramel delight! 
The best thing about dessert fondue is it only takes a few minutes to make. I simply melted white chocolate in the microwave and poured it over half a sliced banana in a fondue pot (or use a saucepan). Add caramel sauce, banana extract, and rum and it's ready! 
So easy, yet so impressive and mouth-wateringly delish!

  Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 banana, thinly sliced
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 4 ounces caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 teaspoon banana liqueur (or substitute banana extract)
  • 1 teaspoon spiced rum

Directions:

  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave in a bowl until melted, stirring every 15-20 seconds. 
  2. Place the banana slices in the bottom of warm fondue pot.
  3. Pour the chocolate over the bananas. 
  4. Add the caramel and stir gently.
  5. Add the banana liqueur and rum and stir gently to combine. 
  6. Optional- you can flambe at this point.
  7. Keep fondue warm over low heat.
