  1. In a small saucepan, warm the cream over medium heat until it begins to lightly boil. Add the chocolate chunks and continue to whisk until the chocolate is melted and begins to thicken. Transfer to a small fondue pot, crock pot, or simply serve right away.

In 1942, Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. This orchard and fruit growing wisdom was passed down from father to son. In 1999, The Fruit Company was founded by Roy's grandsons, Scott & Addison Webster. Today, Scott runs the business as President and CEO. The Fruit Company packs and ships beautiful fruit gifts around the nation.
