Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Butter Theme Week.

I melted half of this large (10.5 oz., 300 g.) baking chocolate bar from Alprose (Castano-Lugano, Switzerland) with a generous hunk of butter, and 1 tablespoon of cacao-infused olive oil to make a creamy dark fondue.

This fondue traveled well in a glass jar (with screw-top lid) for a trip to Monterey. We picked up some local fresh strawberries, and when dipped into this chocolate, the combination made for a simple, but elegant and flavorful dessert classic.
