What Kind Of Chocolate To Use For Chocolate Fondue
You can really use any type of chocolate you would like for this fondue. We’ve used milk chocolate, but if you want it to be a little less sweet feel free to substitute in dark chocolate or bittersweet chocolate. Feel free to use milk chocolate chips , semisweet chocolate chips, or a chocolate bar, or melting wafers. Choose the best chocolate you can for this recipe, since it’s the main ingredient. I wouldn’t use use white chocolate chips for this recipe, as it would be too sweet.

To melt the chocolate a double boiler is a really helpful and definitely safer for not burning chocolate. Melting chocolate can be a little bit tricky, because it can burn easily. A double boiler really helps. If you don’t have one, you can make your own by using a metal mixing bowl over a pot of boiling water. Just be careful not to get any water in with your chocolate, because this will ruin the consistency. Another options is using a microwave and a microwave-safe bowl. I always recommend using your microwave at only half power to avoid burning the chocolate. Or use a heavy saucepan at a low heat on the stove top, stirring often to avoid burning.
To serve your fondue using the double boiler kind of fondue pot that has water in a pot that the ceramic fondue pot sits in is the best. These help prevent your fondue from burning while you’re enjoying it. Another option are simple candle ceramic fondue pots, but again be careful it doesn’t burn. Help prevent this by giving it a stir every so often. An electric fondue pot is a great option too, because they usually have a very even heat.
Don’t have a fondue pot? No problem. You can just serve your chocolate fondue in a ceramic bowl, and microwave it to reheat it if necessary. Another great option is to borrow a fondue pot from a friend, or look for one at a thrift store. Thrift stores seem to always have them. One more option is to make and serve your chocolate fondue in a mini slow cooker. Your regular size one is probably too big and might lead to burning, but a small crockpot on the warm setting would be perfect.
Don’t forget you’ll also need some fondue forks for dipping. Don’t have any fondue forks? Use simple wood or bamboo skewers.
Milk Chocolate Fondue Individual Servings
Not into a communal pot? If you prefer individual servings, especially for kids or serving a crowd, give everyone their own individual bowl of chocolate fondue. Use individual ramekins for serving, along with a small plate of dippers.
What To Use For Chocolate Fondue Dippers
We love to use a variety of dippers for our easy chocolate fondue. Be sure to include lots of fresh fruit, but also baked goods, candy, and even something salty make great dippers. Some favorite dippers are:
- banana slices
- apple slices
- rice krispie squares
- angel food cake
- pound cake cubes
- brownie bites
- shortbread cookies
- gummy candies
- wafer cookies
- dried fruit
- gummy candies
- rolled wafer cookies
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate (milk or semi sweet), chopped or chips
- 1 can (300 mL) sweetened condensed milk
- In a saucepan combine sweetened condensed milk and chocolate. (I used chocolate bars, broken into small pieces, chocolate chips would be great also.)
- Heat over low heat in a heavy saucepan, or in a double boiler while stirring until chocolate is completely melted and combined with the sweetened condensed milk.
- Serve while warm with assorted dippers such as: strawberries, bananas, pineapple, grapes, blueberries, cookies, marshmallows, Rice Krispies, brownies, pretzels, gummy candies, nuts, dried fruit.
