Dark Chocolate Fondue

Mmm, Chocolate. Who doesn’t love chocolate? The crown on our delicious fondue feast from last weekend was a rich, dark chocolate fondue that couldn’t have been easier. Or more delicious.

Dark Chocolate Fondue

  • 12 ounces dark chocolate (I used Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate (60% ) chips)
  • 8 ounces heavy whipping cream

1. Heat the chocolate and cream in a Pyrex bowl over simmering water. Be sure that the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.

2. Stir gently until the chocolate and cream are combined, about 3 minutes.

3. Transfer to a fondue pot with heat source lit (or, in our case, a crockpot on warm (not low, warm)).

4. Enjoy!

Note: As I said before, I don’t have a fondue pot, so we had to enjoy our fondue out of a regular old crockpot, with regular forks. So what? It turned out great: rich, dark, and creamy. It gave me another chance to admire my new fancy crockpot from Christmas, also. The multiple inserts were awesome for this; I just swapped crockpot bowls between the cheese and chocolate. I’ll bet your “real” fondue pot doesn’t do that!

I served this chocolate fondue with apples, grapes, strawberries, raspberries, pretzel chips, and chunks of pound cake. Yum!
