Swiss-German Milk Chocolate Fondue

This recipe is taken from the 1980 Milk Calendar. No one makes chocolate the way the Swiss and Germans do, and it is from this tradition that we have chosen this deliciously simple fondue dessert idea. It can be glamourized with the addition of a liqueur, or simply served over ice cream as a sauce. We've featured it served with fresh fruit as the perfect ending to a dinner party on a warm summer's evening.
