"Quick correction ... the half recipe actually fed 6 of us: 4 adults, 2 teenagers."

MY REVIEW

"This is a great recipe! I would only clarify that you must stir the mixture as it heats - don't let it come to a boil before stirring or you'll have lumps of cornstarch in it. (Trust me - I've done it in the past!) ... This was a huge hit at my brother's last barbecue. Both the adults and the kids loved it. We dipped strawberries and cubes of pound cake. I want to try it with the mini-meringues - didn't have time to make those. My sis-in-law asked for the recipe. This is a very large recipe - 5 cups is a lot of fondue! I halved it for 5 people and we all had plenty. Highly recommended!"
