It simply requires gently heating cream, chocolate, and some vanilla until melted and smooth, which takes less than 15 minutes. And you don’t even need a fondue pot. Just pick your favorite brand of chocolate, as the flavor will be critical to the finished dip. Then grab your choice of dippers and dig in!
For the Fondue:
2 cups heavy cream
24 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, or chopped semisweet chocolate bars (see Tips)
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Sliced bananas, apples, or pears
Cake, or banana bread, cut into cubes
Cookies or graham crackers
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
If you have a fondue pot, prepare it according to the manufacturer’s instructions and set it on the stand.
In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the cream until hot, but not simmering.
Add the chocolate and stir just until melted and smooth.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Pour the chocolate fondue into the fondue pot and set it up over the heat.
Serve with your choice of dippers.
