Want perfect chocolate fondue without the fuss? This easy recipe for chocolate fondue is incredibly rich and decadent. Perfect for all the dipping!
10 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (see note)
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (see note above for other variations)
Lots of dipping options (strawberries, bananas, small rice krispie squares, vanilla cookies, etc.)
In a saucepan, combine the chocolate, milk and cream and heat on low, stirring often, until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Don’t let it come to a boil; keep it on low heat.
Once melted, stir in the vanilla extract. If needed, stir in heavy cream or milk a tablespoon at a time to adjust for a thinner consistency. Pour the mixture into a fondue pot or small slow cooker to keep warm while serving.
Serve with dippers of your choice. We love: marshmallows, vanilla cookies, strawberries, rice krispie treats cut in little squares, bananas.
Any extra chocolate leftovers (??) will keep well in the refrigerator – just reheat on low to have yourself another chocolate fondue experience.
