Dip the night away at the fondue table. Set a pot of melted chocolate out amid plates filled with pieces of fruit and cake for a fun and festive dessert.
Set a heat-proof bowl, or the top of a double boiler, over a pan of gently simmering water. Place the chopped chocolate and the heavy cream in the bowl, and heat, whisking occasionally, until the chocolate is melted, about 7 minutes. Remove the bowl from the heat. Pour the corn syrup into the melted chocolate mixture, and stir to combine. Transfer the chocolate mixture to a fondue pot set over a low flame. Serve the fondue mixture with fruit pieces and cake cubes; provide guests with skewers for dipping.
