  1. Heat the cream over medium heat in a small saucepan until tiny bubbles show and begins to lightly and slowly simmer.
  2. Remove from heat, add the chocolate, and whisk until smooth and full incorporated.
  3. Immediately transfer to a fondue pot heated at low or with a low flame, or serve straight from the pot.
  4. Arrange the dip-ables on a platter or plates around the chocolate pot.
  5. Use a fondue fork, bamboo skewer, seafood fork, or salad fork to dip the fruit pieces and other dip-ables into the hot melted cream chocolate mixture.
  6. Eat immediately.

If the fondue begins to feel a little stiff, add a tablespoon of heavy cream and stir. It will help it go a little longer. Eventually, it will cook down though and you may need to start a new pot.
