Amaretto-Mascarpone Fondue

  • 1 1/2 cups (about 12 oz. mascarpone cheese
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Amaretto flavored liqueur or espresso coffee
  • 1/2 tsp orange extract, optional
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground or freshly grated nutmeg image placeholder

For Dipping: Grilled or broiled peaches, nectarines and pears

In a small-size saucepan, heat mascarpone cheese over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted. Stir in sugar, Amaretto and orange extract and heat 1 to 2 minutes.

Transfer to a ceramic fondue pot and keep warm over a fondue burner. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg. The fondue may be served in the pot or individual warmed ramekins. Serve with grilled or broiled fruit.

For grilled fruit: Preheat grill or broiler. Cut fruit in halves and remove pits. Brush lightly with a little melted butter. Grill fruit over medium-hot coals just until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Don't allow fruit to get too soft. The fruit may also be broiled 3 to 4 minutes, turning once.
