With just 2 ingredients and 10 minutes of your time, you can whip up this Chocolate Fondue to serve at a party or for a fun weeknight treat!
Fondue has long been known as a communal pot where dipping long-stemmed forks with bread into the cheese is quite popular. Since the 1950’s though, the name fondue has been generalized to other dishes such as Chocolate Fondue.
It all sounds rather fancy, but is actually very easy. This Chocolate Fondue has only 2 ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to put together. After making the Chocolate Fondue, you can add it to this fun Chocolate Fondue Maker. Or if you don’t have one, just melt the chocolate with a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk on the stove for this fun treat.
Chocolate Fondue Recipe
- Sweetened Condensed Milk – this comes in a can and you can find it in the baking aisle of your grocery store
- Chocolate Chips – you can use any kind you like, I use milk chocolate chips
Begin by adding the milk and chocolate chips to a heavy saucepan
Stir constantly and cook over medium-low heat until the chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth
Mixture should be thick and creamy. Now you can transfer it to a bowl or fondue pot.
Chocolate Fondue Dippers
What you serve with your chocolate fondue is totally up to you. Here are a few suggestions –
- Fruit – berries, grapes, pineapple, oranges – really any firm fruit works great
- Pretzels – I like to use pretzel sticks that are a little thicker, or square pretzels
- Cookies – wafer cookies are great
- Marshmallows – my favorite, you can even get flavored marshmallows which are a fun change
- Pound Cake – for Christmas we used frozen Pound Cake and cut it into shapes
You will also need skewers of some kind to dip with. And you can add fruit to some of them ahead of time. I like these skewers that are used for making rock candy.
My boys love Fondue, especially for a special occasion. Over the last several years, we have been enjoying Fondue for Valentine’s Day. It’s a delicious treat on a special day for the whole family. And this year we had it on Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
Perhaps you are Cooking for Two for Valentine’s Day, Fondue is perfect. And for dessert, Chocolate Fondue with Marshmallows, Fruit and Cookies for dipping.
