The Best Chocolate Fondue Recipe

My mom has made this chocolate fondue recipe for her annual Christmas fondue party for over 20 years. 

As soon as Zach and I owned our first house, we carried on the tradition. 

We look forward to this party all year! 

This fondue is wonderful for a dinner party or special occasion and exceeds the expectations of the pickiest of chocoholics.

And I promise, with the right chocolate, it is the BEST!!

Along with this fabulous chocolate fondue recipe, you will also find a list of dippers for chocolate fondue.

This chocolate fondue recipe would also do well as a chocolate fondue for a fountain.

Bon appetit!

    The key to a good chocolate fondue is investing in good chocolate.  This is not the time to buy the cheapest option at the grocery store. 

    Invest in high-quality chocolate, and you will not be disappointed.

    Even though I have been made this chocolate fondue a dozen times I still don’t have a double boiler. 

    I use a large pot, bring the water to a boil, turn it down to a simmer, place metal canning rings in the bottom, and nest a saucepan inside.

    You can see here the reason for the metal rings is to keep the smaller pot level otherwise your fondue will run out.  It also helps the water to heat the smaller pot more evenly.

    I recommend mixing the non-chocolate ingredients first.  Allow these to get warm and then add your chocolate chunks slowly.

    Stir constantly.  You do not want your fondue to burn.  Chocoholics will taste the difference!

    The result will be a delicious, melt-in-your-mouth, chocolatey taste of heaven.

    I typically make this fondue a day or even several days ahead of my party, so I pour it into a glass batter bowl that I can then reheat in the microwave and pour into my fondue pots.
