There really is nothing like dipping sweet, fresh strawberries or salty pretzels into wonderful, warm chocolate. It just hits all of the senses. Add really good quality dark chocolate and a splash of nice liqueur and you have wonderful treat to share after a romantic meal. Or, skip the liqueur and you have a fun way to serve dessert for your little ones. The thing I love about fondue is the serving size is small, so while you are enjoying something decadent, you wont feel weighed down afterwards.

Dark Chocolate Fondue with Kahula


  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter
  • 8 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Kahlua (or any liqueur that you like ie: Chambord or Grand Marnier)
  • marshmallows, pretzels, strawberries, apple slices, cherries, or bananas for serving

In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir heavy cream and butter until just simmer. Do not let it reach a boil.

Remove from heat and add dark chocolate pieces, stirring quickly. Add Kahlua and pour into a warm fondue pot. Serve immediately.
