Easy Chocolate Fondue Recipes

Chocolate Fondue with Strawberries and Kiwi Fruit , GreatPartyRecipes.com


Large gathering or intimate party of two, nothing goes over like chocolate fondue recipes.

Choose from white or dark chocolate fondues, or marbled. For something a little out of the ordinary, but equally delicious, try the Smores recipe.

Serving tip: All chocolate fondues should be served in a ceramic fondue pot or butter warmer over low flame. A warm bowl works well, too, if the chocolate is reheated from time to time. Just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds.

This recipe is the most popular of all the dessert fondue recipes.

1 cup heavy cream

Marbled Chocolate Fondue Recipe

The use of both white and dark chocolate gives this one an outstanding look among dessert fondues.

1 cup heavy cream
10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat the cream in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat until hot, about 2 to 3 minutes. When hot, add the chocolate and stir until it is just melted and smooth. Stir in vanilla.

Variations:

  • Substitute 2 to 3 tablespoons of kirsch, brandy, rum, or orange liqueur for the vanilla.
