Ghirardelli Ultimate Chocolate Fondue

Ghirardelli Ultimate Chocolate Fondue

-adapted from allrecipes.com
*I also doubled this one. Leftover chocolate is never bad.

-1/2-3/4 cup heavy cream (depends how thick you like it)
-1 t. vanilla extract
-2 T unsalted butter
-6 oz Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate (chopped, or just buy the bittersweet chips as I did)
-6 oz Ghirardelli milk chocolate (I also used the chips here)

In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, vanilla, and butter. Heat over medium heat until the mixture just simmers. Remove from the heat and stir in the bittersweet and milk chocolates until completely melted and smooth.
 

 Chocolate dippers: Angel food cake cubes, marshmallows, strawberries, fresh pineapple. Not pictured: More pretzel rods...and Oreos. Yup.
