Flaming Turtle Chocolate Fondue

Ingredients:

* 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

Instructions:

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

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 let the chocolate burn.

Pour into a warm fondue pot.

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

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.

Sprinkle with the pecans.

Keep fondue warm over low heat.

Serve with bite-sized dippers such as strawberries, bananas, Rice Krispies Treats®, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies.

Serves 4 to 6.
