Copycat Flaming Turtle Chocolate Fondue

I LOVE fondue, but I don't like the price of it when you eat out, so I thought, why not try and replicate at home and see how we do?  I bought my fondue pot off of Amazon for about $20 and it was a great purchase.  Now we can have fondue quickly and easily whenever the fancy strikes. Confession:  I don't do flaming anything.  I don't even use real alcohol in this recipe... I just use rum or brandy extract, whatever I have on hand and it tastes delicious.  You could even just use vanilla in a pinch.

12oz chocolate chips (I prefer semi-sweet, but you can use milk chocolate too.)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp rum or brandy extract
1/2 cup warm caramel ice-cream topping
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Melt chocolate chips and heavy cream in double boiler or in the microwave in 15 second intervals. (Heat, stir, heat, stir, until it is melted.)  Pour chocolate mixture in to the fondue pot, mix in the extract, swirl in the warm caramel ice-cream topping, sprinkle on the nuts, and get to dipping.  Does it get easier than this?

Some of our favorite things to dip:  Pretzels, bananas, strawberries, raspberries, pound cake, marshmallows, angel food cake, brownie bites, cheesecake bites.
