Total time 1 hr, 40 mins
Yield

Serves 12 (serving size: about 3 tablespoons fondue and 6 strawberries)

Make this a kid-friendly dessert by omitting the bourbon and increasing the vanilla to 1 1/2 teaspoons. You can also serve 10 thin pretzel sticks for dipping, but note that this will add about 21 calories and 96mg sodium.
