This recipe is the winner of our “Uncover the Flavors” recipe contest, sponsored by Kahlua, and comes from Noelle Bothe of Uniontown, Ohio, who serves this fondue with fresh-cut fruit, marshmallows, and brownies and as a sauce for ice cream.

2 cups dark chocolate baking chips
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup Kahlua
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Pour water to a depth of 1″ in a 4-qt. saucepan over medium heat and cover with a heatproof bowl. (Or, if you have one, set up a double boiler over medium heat.) Add chocolate and warm until melted. Add butter and, using a wooden spoon, stir until combined. Stir in cream until glossy and add Kahlua, cinnamon, salt, and cayenne. Serve fondue with cut fruit, marshmallows, or brownies, or drizzle over ice cream.
