What Chocolate to Use When Making Fondue


Chocolate fondue creates a wonderful, post-dinner aroma. When it's served with fruit, it is slightly less decadent than other chocolate desserts. Variations on the theme will delight your guests.

Chocolate Chips

  • Create a delicious chocolate fondue with chocolate chips. Mix one package (12 oz.) of chocolate chips with 2/3 cup of heavy cream in a heavy saucepan set on low to medium-low heat. Stir continuously until the ingredients are melted. Add 1 tbsp. of vanilla extract and serve in a fondue pot.

Milk Chocolate

  • Milk chocolate's rich creaminess tastes great with fruit and other fondue dessert foods. Place a 12 oz. package of milk chocolate chips or a 12 oz. bar of milk chocolate, broken up into pieces, in a heavy sauce pan. Add 2/3 cup of half-and-half and stir constantly over low heat until the chocolate melts.

White Chocolate

  • White chocolate is rich and creamy, but has no chocolate flavoring. It's made by adding vanilla, cream and sugar to cocoa butter. It's delicious as a fondue chocolate. Heat 3/4 cup of heavy cream in a heavy saucepan until it's hot--about three minutes. Add a 12 oz. package of white chocolate pieces and stir until they are melted. Add 1 tsp. of vanilla and serve.

Cocoa Powder

  • Create delicious fondue with cocoa powder. Pour 1 cup of cocoa powder in a cup and put it aside. In a heavy sauce pan, mix together 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1 1/4 cup of corn syrup and 1 1/2 cup of water. Heat the ingredients on medium heat until they boil. Let the mixture simmer for 15 minutes, then slowly add the cocoa. Slowly pour in 3/4 cup of heavy cream. Put a 5 oz. bar of milk chocolate into the mixture. Heat until it's all melted and serve.
