Fire Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate Fondue

This recipe is designed to serve 4, at about 5 mg per person, but you can adjust the amounts of pot chocolate versus regular chocolate to create more servings or a stronger fondue.

  • 2  Medicated Deep Dark Chocolate bars (20 mg total, 5 mg per person)
  • 9 oz chocolate
  • 1/2-3/4 cup milk
  • 2 table spoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

How it’s done:

1. Heat 1/2 cup milk and chocolate in a microwave or double boiler over very low heat stirring frequently.  If the mixture is too thick or looks curdled, add more milk and stir until smooth.

2. When all the chocolate is melted, add in the butter, Grand Marnier and vanilla, and stir to fully incorporate.

The list of scrumptious and creative items to dip in warm melted pot chocolate… there’s no end in sight. Our craving started with fresh fruit. We bought some strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, bananas and pineapple, then chopped them up and created fresh fruit skewers for round one. These turn out beautiful and are a fabulous, easy start to a dinner party or fall bbq. Seahawks party, anyone?

Then we played with things like candied ginger and vanilla waffle cookies. We also decided to blow some minds by crushing up Snickerdoodle cookies and sprinkling those on some of the chocolate-dipped items. Delectable, I tell you.

To finish our desert with more desert, we decided we couldn’t complete our pot-chocolate-dipping spectacular without some classic strawberries and marshmallows. We threw pretzels into this mix for some extra salty crunch.

We’ll leave you with some final words of wisdom. Try this warm chocolate over your favorite ice cream, or use it to sweeten your morning coffee. And then get creative. Enjoy!
