Add chocolate callets and whipping cream to a large, glass mixing bowl; place bowl into microwave and microwave on full power in 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, until chocolate is melted and and mixture is smooth.  Whisk in brandy and vanilla; pour chocolate into a fondue pot that is preheated on the lowest setting.   To serve, let guests choose their favorite dippers inserted onto wooden skewers, dipped into the warm chocolate fondue.
