Fantastic fondue. I served it at my book club meeting with many different types of fruit and some shortbread. I used the darkest chocolate I could find (Lindt 85% cocoa). The combination of the sweet fruit and the orange/bitter of the dark chocolate was outstanding. For me, milk chocolate would have ruined this recipe. I wouldn't change a thing. As an added benefit, the darker the chocolate, the better it is for you health-wise.

This was good. It was not nearly sweet enough for my sweet tooth, which may stem from the fact that I for once had high-quality dark chocolate on hand and used it. I ended up adding quite a bit of corn syrup. Edit: tried it again using semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the fancy stuff. Worked very well and was finally sweet enough for me.

This was excellent. It was a bit more liquid than I would like but the taste was phenomenal.

Awesome! Everyone who has tried this has loved it! I increased the amount of orange liqueur to boost the flavor.

Very good, and easy. I used a bag of Ghiradelli semisweet chips. The fondue was thin at first, but thickened over time in the fondue pot.

This was very tasty. The flavor reminds me of the chocolate oranges you buy around Christmas time. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the dark chocolate, and I substituted orange extract for orange liqueur. We dipped strawberries, raspberries, mandarin orange slices, graham crackers, and marshmallows. Wonderful!

UPDATE- Looked in the fridge later and discovered I accidentally used half and half instead of heavy cream. That would be the cause of my failure, both the curdling and the thinness. Half and half NOT a reccomended substitute. This didn't turn out at all for me. First of all, adding the orange juice to my heavy cream managed to make it go sour and start to have little clumps in it. Then when I added the chocolate, it melted but you could still see the white globs from the cream. The texture seemed grainy and yet it was quite thin. There also was not much orange flavor and overall it didn't seem sweet enough to me.
