1/2 cup white chocolate
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup premium cherry pie filling
2 tablespoons rum, 151 proof, for flambé
Sliced strawberries and bananas, pineapple chunks, marshmallows, cubes of pound cake or cheesecake for dipping
Soften chocolate in the microwave. Heat milk in a fondue pot. Once it's hot, add softened chocolate. Stir to a smooth consistency. Spoon the cherries into a pool in the middle of the chocolate. To serve, pour rum over the chocolate. Leave a small amount on the spoon, and light with a lighter. Use the flaming spoon to ignite the rum on the chocolate. As it burns, slowly swirl the cherries into the chocolate. Allow the flame to burn out. Place dipping items on skewers and dip them into the fondue. Be careful as you reach the sides and bottom of the pot; the chocolate tends to be hotter there.
