Chocolate Fondue Recipe

There's nothing quite so deliciously sinful as chocolate-dipped strawberries. Imagine a warm summer night... those first, fresh strawberries out of the garden... a pot of smooth, rich, creamy chocolate, and a gang of friends. Bring out the fondue pot!

At a glance

1 1/2 cups, 4 to 8 servings


Choose your measure:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or evaporated milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coffee-flavored liqueur or vanilla or hazelnut syrup
  • 2 tablespoons light or dark corn syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • whole strawberries, hulled and washed; or assorted sliced fruit, cake, or other berries


  1. In a saucepan set over medium heat, bring the cream or milk, salt, liqueur or syrup, and corn syrup to a boil.
  2. Remove the mixture from the heat and add the chocolate all at once. Stir until the chocolate is melted. If all the chocolate doesn't melt, return the pan briefly to the heat, and stir until it's melted completely.
  3. Stir in the vanilla, then pour the chocolate into the fondue pot.
  4. Store leftovers, covered, in the fridge for up to a week.
