This ingenious idea of using yogurt instead of heavy cream in an irresistible chocolate fondue came from Kevin Brauch, host of the TV show and companion book, Thirsty Traveler ? Road Recipes (J.W. Ripley). Who else would think up a delicious way to add healthy yogurt to decadent chocolate and rum?

Flavour Boost

Stir in pinches of chili powder or cayenne. These are particularly good when using mango slices for dipping.
