10 ounces mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
¼ to ½ cup chocolate chips
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1½ cups water
1 tablespoon rum
Dippers (like cookies or dried fruit)
Puree berries, adding just enough water to liquefy them. Dehydrate until crispy. Mix berries, sugar, cocoa, chocolate chips, pepper, and cornstarch in an airtight bag.
Boil water. Add berry mixture. Stir, cover, and set aside five minutes. Bring to a boil, then simmer five to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, add rum. Return to heat; flambé fondue with a lighter or stove flame. Stir, dunk your dippers, and enjoy.
