White Chocolate Pina Colada Fondue

This white fondue has all the flavors of the fun tropical drink it is named after. Be sure to get high-quality white chocolate; the less expensive brands do not produce a good result. If you’re a fan, go ahead and add the sweetened flaked coconut, but some people don’t like anything chunky to disturb the smoothness of a fondue. And be sure to use cream of coconut, not coconut milk. Complete the piña colada theme by dunking chunks of dried or fresh pineapple. This is also great with fresh strawberries, dried apricots, ladyfingers, and/or cubes of chocolate or vanilla pound cake.
