This decadent dessert will make a dramatic presentation for guests and partygoers.


  • 12 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 tablespoon 151 rum
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans


Step 1

Combine the chocolate and cream in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water.

Step 2

Heat until the chocolate is melted, stirring constantly; or combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30-45 seconds. Be careful not to burn chocolate.

Step 3

Pour into a warm fondue pot.

Step 4

Pour the caramel into the center of the chocolate mixture. Do not stir.

Step 5

Add the rum to the pot and ignite carefully, using a long wooden match or lighter. Allow the flame to burn out and stir gently to combine.

Step 6

Sprinkle with the pecans before serving. Keep fondue warm over low heat. Serve with assorted fruits, marshmallows or 1-inch cubed pieces of pound cake.
