This photo was used to represent Heresy in my BFA Show. I loved photographing the flames on the fondue. They were so pretty! I used the following recipe for the fondue, although I ended up using more rum to get this large a flame.

The Melting Pot Flaming Turtle Fondue:


  • 2 ounces melted milk chocolate
  • 2 ounces caramel sundae syrup
  • 1 ounce chopped pecans
  • 1/3 ounce one fifty one rum (may substitute with other flambe liquor)



  • Using a double boiler fondue pot, heat mixture of chocolate and caramel to a temperature no greater than 135°F
  • Stir frequently. (For thinner chocolate, slowly add whole milk while stirring until desired consistency is reached.)
  • Slowly pour rum into fondue pot.
  • Ignite liquor by touching lighted match to edge of pot.
  • After flame burns, sprinkle nuts over chocolate mixture.
  • Serve at 120°F with assorted fruits, marshmallows, cheesecake, brownies and more.
