Classic Chocolate Fondue Recipe


Classic Chocolate Fondue is the perfect dessert to end a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner this year. Although there are dozens of great dippers (see list below), fresh strawberries seem to be the most romantic; the other dippers can be served on other days. Since this luscious fondue has only three ingredients, it’s easy enough for almost anyone to make. The following recipe is cooked in the microwave and transferred to a small fondue pot. Leftovers can be refrigerated for several weeks, and reheated or used as hot fudge sauce over ice cream.

When choosing a fondue pot for chocolate fondue, make sure you get one with a candle for warming, rather than one that uses Sterno or other stronger heat sources. Chocolate fondue, as well as most varieties of dessert fondue, can scorch easily if the heat source gets too hot. No worries, however; something as fabulous as this will disappear so fast, that minimal stirring will be necessary.

6 Servings

1 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips , preferably 60% Cacao (highest quality – try to avoid “chocolate flavored,” cheap store brands, and Nestles, which contains more additives than most others)
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons liqueur, or coffee syrup (choose a favorite flavor)

  1. In a large microwaveable bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and whipping cream for 3 minutes.
  2. Let sit 5 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
  3. Stir in the liqueur or coffee syrup.
  4. Place in a fondue pot to stay warm, and serve with dippers.
  5. Stir the fondue often, and if necessary, thin with heated whipping cream.
