Chocolate is everyone's favorite indulgence and chocolate fondue is no doubt, a luxury to the senses. It can be eaten with practically anything that goes well with chocolate, even roasted meats! But let's not get carried away. This kind of fondue is best enjoyed with a side of strawberries, crackers, or bread. The word fondue comes from the French word "fondre", which means "to melt". These recipes are great for a fondue party, a girls' night, and also a fun family dessert treat.
Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fondue
- Heavy cream, 1 cup
- Milk chocolate (finely chopped), 6 ounces
- Chunky peanut butter, ½ cup
- In a small saucepan, heat the cream over medium-low heat until it starts simmering.
- Add the milk chocolate pieces to the cream and let it stand until it softens, which will take about a minute.
- Whisk the mixture until the chocolate melts.
- Gradually add the peanut butter and continue to whisk until the fondue turns smooth.
- Once it becomes smooth, transfer it to a fondue pot or a chafing dish and keep it warm over a burner.
- Serve it with pretzels, pretzel sticks, brownies, bananas, strawberries, etc.
Chocolate Fondue Using Condensed Milk
- Milk chocolate (grated), 8 ounces
- Sweetened condensed milk, 1 can of 14 ounces
- Milk, 1/3 cup
- In a saucepan, melt the grated milk chocolate over low heat.
- Once it melts, add the condensed milk and milk to it and stir well.
- Heat the mixture while consistently stirring.
- If the consistency of the fondue becomes very thick, add extra milk to it, but not more than ½ a tablespoon at a time. Do not add water as it might alter the taste and consistency of the fondue beyond repair.
- Once the desired consistency is achieved, transfer it to the fondue pot and place it over a burner.
- You can enjoy the fondue with cut fruit, marshmallows, or bread sticks.
