This is a great fondue with 1/3 freshly brewed coffee or cappuchino instead of the instant powder and water. A tip for the leftovers (because everyone else was right, this does make a lot!)... This recipie is essentialy a truffle recipie. Let the leftovers cool and then refrigerate. Round out small balls and roll in cocoa powder, powdered sugar or toadsted coconut. All of a sudden you have a new, gormet desert you can serve all over again and impress the crowds! Truffles also make great gifts when wrapped nicely! Read More

I am 12 and I made this fondue by myself. Oranges, strawberries, pound cake, pineapple, apple, bananas, and marshmallows work best for dipping. Read More

The need to entertain spur-of-the moment guests led me to this wonderful dessert recipe. Soooo simple and quick. I don't own a fondue pot, so I made it in a double boiler (without the water) and transferred it to a pretty chafing dish. This was so delicious, Sara. My company thoroughly enjoyed it with a variety of fresh fruit and pound cake. Try the Apricot Brandy Pound Cake (quick version made with Yellow cake mix) from this site. It freezes well and can be cut into cubes easily. I also had some chocolate pound cake from this site in the freezer. I had some 5 inch bamboo skewers left from another recipe that I gave each guest. They were happily threading the skewers with a variety of items, and wondering when I had had the time to prepare such a luscious dessert. They said the fondue was as good if not better than that at a local fondue restaurant. I will use this again and again. Read More

We LOVE this recipe! I used 2 packages of milk chocolate chips on one bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I also followed the suggestions of ommitting the water. The results were OUTSTANDING! I had enough left over from a playdate to take to a bbq the same evening. I rewarmed the chocolate and added a little more milk to even it out. EVEN BETTER! Thank you so much for this recipe!

Great fondue recipe! Try skewering a combo of raspberries and sponge cake together before dipping. Bananas, marshmallows, or strawberries were great too. But, even after a party, I had at least 1 1/2 cups of chocolate left over. So, here's my idea for WHAT TO DO WITH THE LEFTOVER CHOCOLATE: reheat in the microwave, until melted; stir in walnuts. I used about 1 cup, but you can adjust it to your preference. Spray a rectangular glass pan (mine is a 6x9") with Pam, or line with wax paper, then pour the mix in. Layer tiny marshmallows, cut-up leftover marshmallows, or mashmallow fluff over the top. Cool, then refridgerate until relatively solid (overnight). Cut into squares, wrap individually with clear plastic wrap and VOILA! Homemade Rocky Road Fudge. It will be soft at room temp, so you might want to keep the fudge in the fridge or freezer. Makes a nice treat. Read More

This was great. I also used the best chocolate that I could find (Ghiradelli) and reduced the coffee a bit...didn't want it to be too strong because the main eaters would be kids. It was great....Will make this many more times. Thanks. Read More

Easy and very delicious. Used milk chocolate chips intead of grating the chocolate. I made this for a potluck at work and everyone loved it. (I didn't put the coffee in either) I warmed it up in the microwave and it stayed warm and perfect for an hour and a half! Read More

This was amazing! It did make a ton and we have lots left over. We dipped some pound cake and strawberries and also apples and marshmellows. The marshmellows went really fast and everyone was surprised that they liked that one so much! I used really good chocolate too so I think that helped. I used Ghiradelli's milk chocolate and a package of the double chocolate too. Amazing!! Read More

Fantastic recipe! Instead of using the coffee I used a shot of Bailey's. It was excellent! I also added crushed Oreo cookies to the chocolate mixture (about 4 cookies crushed). We dipped pineapple banana apple Oreos and large marshmallows covered in Oreo crumbs. Read More
