Chocolate Fondue for Two …or Twenty

One of my favorite and fastest desserts to put together is fondue.  You can get as creative as you want with it, or just use what you have lying around in your fridge and pantry.  Chocolate fondue is my favorite dessert to whip together when I have all the girls over, or for a stay-in date night with my honey.  It takes minimal effort and hardly any time, which is nice especially when you want to spend time with your guests or your love.

You can bust this out with a slow cooker, a special fondue pot, or microwave safe bowl, or a regular pot.  All you need is good chocolate and heavy cream, and any other flavorings you may want to add.  The fun part is all of the stuff you can come up with to dip in that warm chocolatey goodness!  This is a zero pressure, hassle-free, and quick Valentine’s Day Dessert idea.  Perfect for a Date Night in.

Some of my favorite pairings with chocolate fondue: strawberries, pound cake, pretzels, Oreos, brownies, and pineapple (with white chocolate fondue is amazing!).

Spread it out over your dining table, or… on the coffee table in front of your favorite chick flick.

This is a lovingly roasted heart-shaped marshmallow.  …I made it just for you.  Because you’re special to me, and I want you to know just how much.  This little lovely dipped in chocolate was my favorite treat of the night.  Nothing more romantical or fun than roasting marshmallows and dipping them in warm chocolate…

Chocolate Fondue Recipe

Serves 5-10 people
12 oz Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Bittersweet Chocolate, and/or White Chocolate, chopped
1- 1 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
2 Tbsp Flavoring such as, Amaretto (optional)

In a fondue pot, slow cooker, double boiler, or regular pot, heat 1 cup of the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer.  Remove from heat, and add chocolate.  Let sit for one minute. Add flavoring.  Stir until smooth.  If you are going to add more heavy cream to thin your fondue, make sure to heat it first as you did before.  Do not add cold cream to your fondue!  Keep your fondue over low heat to keep warm and dip away!

Enjoy!
