What is chocolate fondue?

Chocolate fondue is usually made from melted dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, or white chocolate. (You can use chocolate chips or crushed chocolate bars.) It's mixed with milk or heavy cream.

It became popular in the U.S. in the early 1960s along with cheese fondue (such as my Brie & Chive Fondue) and meat fondue (cooking meat in a broth fondue). Maybe you've had it at a fondue restaurant.

You don't have to use milk or cream. I make an Easy Dairy Free Chocolate Fondue Recipe with coconut cream and dairy-free chocolate.

You could even make it with one of the new keto chocolate brands. For variety, add creamy peanut butter, a cup marshmallow cream, or a teaspoon vanilla extract or two.

You can also make peppermint chocolate fondue by adding a teaspoon peppermint extract.

Fun fact: the name “fondue” originates from the French word fondre, “to melt.”
