Chocolate Fondue

Looking for a fun and easy chocolate dessert experience for gatherings large or small? Make chocolate fondue! Dip fresh fruit, cake, cookies, pretzels and other dip-ables into luscious melted chocolate. It’s ready in just 10 minutes.

  • Serves: 8 servings
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 cup (8 ounces) heavy cream
  • Pinch salt
  • 12 ounces milk or dark chocolate (chips or roughly chopped bar)


  1. Heat the cream with a pinch of salt over medium heat in a small saucepan until tiny bubbles show and begins to lightly and slowly simmer.

  2. Remove from heat, add the chocolate, and whisk until smooth and fully incorporated.

  3. Transfer the chocolate mix to a fondue pot heated at low or with a low flame, or serve straight from the pot. Arrange the dip-ables on a platter or plates around the chocolate pot. Use a fondue fork, bamboo skewer, seafood fork, or salad fork to dip the fruit pieces and other dip-ables into the hot melted chocolate mixture. Eat immediately. If the fondue begins to feel a little stiff, add a tablespoon of heavy cream and stir. It will help it go a little longer.
