PS: We just used our metal barbecue skewers for our fondue dippage.... ha ha ha! Elegant... that's what we are.
hot fudge sauce recipe. It's easy, smooth, creamy, and delicous! It was absolutely perfect for using as fondue. I used mini chocolate chips, which helped it melt faster. It was seriously done in like 5 or 6 minutes. My kids LOVED this. For dippers, we used fruit, large and mini marshmallows, pretzel sticks, and cubed pound cake. I'll post that recipe below; it was from my Southern Living Cookbook. I made a half recipe in a loaf pan so it was easy to slice into cubes. It had the perfect pound cake texture and was wonderful for dipping- firm, easy to cut, and not crumby.
Chocolate Fondue (or Hot Fudge Sauce)
original post here
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips (mini works best here)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1. Place milk, chocolate chips and sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and vanilla (sauce will thicken while it is cooling). Serve warm with dippers- assorted fruit, cubed pound cake, Nilla Wafers, pretzels, marshmallows, etc. (Leftovers will store nicely in fridge for quite a while).

1 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons sugar
1 3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

2. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl; add to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
4. Bake at 325 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes; remove from pan, and cool completely on wire rack.
5. After cooling, if using for fondue, cut into thick, 1-inch cubes.
