All you need is your favorite type of chocolate, some milk or cream, and the items for dipping. Here's a simple recipe for anyone looking to make their own chocolate fondue at home.


  • 12 ounces of semi-sweet or dark chocolate (or both!)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or milk
  • Optional: 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1-2 tablespoons liqueur (like amaretto or Grand Marnier)
  • Dippers - Fresh fruit (strawberries, banana slices, apple slices, etc.), marshmallows, pound cake cubes, pretzels, graham crackers, biscotti


  1. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in a heat-safe bowl. (If using liqueur add it now.)

  4. Add any optional ingredients such as vanilla extract or cinnamon and stir once more to incorporate them into the mixture.  
  5. Transfer the mixture to a fondue pot with low heat setting if desired – otherwise serve from the bowl it was prepared in!

  7. Enjoy!
