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.

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

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.

    1. Hi Sharon, I’m not quite sure what you mean? The consistency of the chocolate fondue is not super thin, it will hold to the fruit, etc. but it won’t coat it like chocolate candy coating.
      Hope that helps!

    1. Glad you like the Chocolate Fondue Recipe! Thanks!

  1. Hi
    Will this chocolate go hard? I am looking for a recipe to make little chocolate pots that will stay dipable (I am making ‘dipping kits’ for a school bake sale)

    1. Yes this chocolate will need to be reheated to dip with it. You could use it and then put reheating instructions on the kit.

  2. Such a quick and easy date idea for Mothers day. Thank you for sharing at Merry Monday!

  3. I’ve never tried homemade fondue before…can’t wait to try! So decadent yet simple ?
