Easy Chocolate Fondue

When it comes to chocolate, I like to keep it simple.  I love this simple chocolate fondue.  My favorite things to dip in it are pretzels, strawberries and bananas!  My teenagers, Joe and Nick are big fans of peanut butter.  They like to sandwich some peanut butter in between two pretzels and then dip in the chocolate.  It really is the perfect combination of sweet and salty.

This recipe is enough for about 4 people to share.  Or maybe just one if you really like chocolate fondue!!  Here is how I make it:


  • 1 C heavy whipping cream
  • 8 oz (about 1 C) chocolate, finely chopped  (I like Dove dark or milk chocolate)
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract

1.  Pour heavy whipping cream into a medium sauce pan over medium high heat.  Heat for 2- 3 minutes.

2.  Add vanilla extract and stir.

3.  Add chocolate and whisk until melted an well blended, about 2 minutes.

4.  Transfer to a fondue pot over a tea light candle or a small Sterno burner.

5.  Start dipping!!

If you like different flavorings in your chocolate fondue, you can try mixing in different liquors, wine, or even a little espresso.
