Party Tips from Lora – Baratta’s Director of Catering

Planning a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner at home for your loved one? Here’s a recipe for an aphrodisiac dessert that tastes sweet and is easy to make called Chocolate Orange Fondue.

Ingredients include:

1 1/4 C heavy whipping cream
1 Tbsp grated orange zest
3 Tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
12 oz. chopped dark chocolate
1 Tbsp orange liqueur

Heat the cream and orange juice in a saucepan over medium heat until it starts to bubble. Remove from the heat and immediately whisk in the chocolate, orange zest, and orange liqueur until smooth.

Serve in a fondue pot over the lowest heat setting and enjoy your delicious dessert!
