With the onset of Valentines Day many turn to chocolate as a way to express friendship and love. What better way to say love than with a delicious pot of chocolate fondue served with fresh strawberries, bananas, apples or perhaps marshmallows, graham crackers and pretzels?

This recipe is easily converted into double dipping pleasure. After dipping into the chocolate then dip into a bowel of toasted grated coconut, chopped roasted nuts such as peanuts, walnuts, almonds or pecans. For even more fun try dipping into fruit loops, or another favorite cereal before enjoying your chocolate covered morsel.

How to Make Chocolate Fondue

Step-by-Step

  1. Warm the cream in a saucepan over low heat. Add the chocolate, broken into bits, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until all of the chocolate is melted and blended well. You are now ready to add the melted chocolate to the fondue pot and place it over a fresh sterno or a candle depending upon what type of fondue pot you are using.
  2. Avoid scalding the chocolate, by maintaining a low, even level of heat. If the mixture gets too thick for dunking gradually add in more cream until the desired consistency in reached.
  3. For a deliciously flavorful variation substitute Egg Nog or melted vanilla ice cream for the heavy cream in equal amounts. If you are interested in going full flavor with a nice kick you can also add in 2 tbsp of brandy, or Grand Mariner and stir in to fully incorporate. Lastly if you are looking for specific candy flavors then drop in a few miniatures of your favorite candy bar, such as Snickers, Almond Joy or Reeses. Stir until well blended and enjoy.
