    Thought this was delicious. Got major points from the dear bf for making this for him last night. Since he follows a Gluten-free, Casein-free diet I substitued coconut milk, which worked out beautifully - 10/29/09

    I made this for a Chef Meg SP taste testing party. I used unsweetened baker's chocolate. It would quickly solve a dark chocolate craving. It turned out very thick so one serving covered 3 chunks of fruit. I would add more milk next time. Shows you you can eat decadently on SP! - 11/16/09

    Sounds great, but I probably would never measure the amount of choclate that coats my fruit. On something like this portions are hard to measure. - 9/27/09

    I thought maybe a tablespoon over frozen yogurt or a banana.
    It would cut down the calories and still do a chocolate fix. or does it get hard when cold? Then it could be like a cone dipped in that chocolate. OH, I liked those way back when--- LOL
    PS agree with MOOKBALL on measuring - 10/12/09

    I haven't tried this recipe because I don't like marshmallows - too sweet for me. My fave way to eat fresh strawberries is with a drizzle of Hersheys syrup (1-2 tsp - about 35 calories) over cut up strawberries, with a spritz of whipped cream. Simple, yet decadent tasting & very low calories. - 6/8/10

    Very easy and especially rich tasting. This was a great Valentine's Day splurge for my husband and me. I dished myself up a single serving (one-quarter cup) and dipped lots of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries into it! The marshmallows make it smooth, thick and sweet without adding fat. - 2/16/10

    I'm helpless around choc covered strawberries so this is a great stand-in - gives the chocolate taste but way less calories. Not a big fan of marshamallows, so left them out. It was a bit runny so I added more chips, but it's still better because of the evaporated milk. My son and I had a blast! - 2/10/11

    I use Ghiradeli mini choolate chipe 65% or 85% . I put them in the micowave to melt and that way the pyrex bowl is heated to makes it go faster.

    I love this recipe, but I find it to be somewhat misleading. There is no way you can get 12 servings out of this. More likely, 6 or less...
    I know, I know everything in moderation, but lets be realistic, 1/4 does not go very far, and then you have to add the cals of whatever you're dipping into it - 3/21/11

    Melted dark chocolate (Green & Blacks) with some cream and some fresh orange juice, and plenty of fruit of all sorts for dipping.
    Stewed apple or pear goes really well, too, with a dollop each of sauce and some ice cream. - 5/28/10

    I like the chocolate fondue without the marshmallows. I don't need it to be real sweet and I think the marshmallows-even mini ones-are too sweet. Diabetes has a history in my family esp. on my Dad's side so I try to cut out a lot of sweets. Take time to really taste your food. - 1/19/10

    It sounds amazing.. I will have to try it. I noticed no sugar grams? For someone who wonders how they could measure it, try cutting the fruit into hunks and measuring the chocolate and drizzle it over the fruit. That's how I'm going to do it when I make it. - 6/13/13

    @ Flame42--there are 80 calories per half cup, which equates to 480 calories for 3 cups. Divide that by 12 servings and it's 40 calories per serving from the marshmellows.

    This sounds tasty and I will try but I think it would be so great if we knew what a "serving" was. When a recipe says a number of servings, like 12, and there are only two of you it's easy to blow the amount you eat. And for many of us, esp. me, portion control is an issue...especially with chocola - 2/8/11
