Chocolate Fondue

Fondue is the probably my favorite way to celebrate Valentine’s day – or pre-celebrate in our case.  We needed to eat up the last bit of strawberries that have been hanging out in the fridge, so I put together some strawberry shortcake skewers.  We didn’t stop our dipping there though, we added some strawberry marshmallows, bananas, and rice krispies treats into the mix.  It was a great way to spend our date-night-in last Thursday!

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  1. Follow your fondue pots instructions, they should read something like this.
  2. Add heavy cream and milk to fondue pot and heat on 4 1/2 until bubbling.
  3. Reduce heat to 3-3 1/2 and add chocolate chips ~1/2 cup at a time, stirring with a whisk (plastic is ideal so you don’t risk scratching the inside of the pot).
  4. When the chocolate is completely melted, turn heat down to 2 1/2-3 to keep it warm.

Notes: You can add in 1/4 cup of liqueur for flavor if desired, just add it after the chocolate chips have melted and give it a stir.  You can use any kind of chocolate chips or chopped chocolate; it’s a great way to use up the half-full bags sitting in the pantry!
