1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 pound of chopped milk chocolate (I used 1 1/2 bags (11.5 ounce bag) of Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips... it was HEAVENLY)
Pour the cream into a medium, thick-bottomed saucepan (or double boiler if you have one) over low heat. Bring the cream to a simmer and add the chocolate. Stir or whisk until the chocolate is melted. Transfer the chocolate to dipping bowls and serve.
Here's a picture of our table before I called the boys to supper. It was an awesome night! ... I dirtied every pan and bowl I own :-)
