Quick and easy chocolate fondue made with 4 ingredients. You don’t even need a fondue pot to make it! Perfect a a dip for berries, cookies, and more.



  • 1 1/2 cups cream
  • 16 ounces good quality chocolate chips or chopped chocolate bar (semi sweet or milk chocolate) (about 2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 24 tablespoons peanut butter
  • Things for dipping in your chocolate fondue such as: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, banana slices, apple slices, vanilla wafers, frozen cheesecake chunks, gummy bears, pound cake, graham crackers, angel food cake, pretzels etc.


  1. In a medium sauce pan, over medium heat, heat the cream until you just start to see steam coming off the top.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate all at once. Let the mixture rest for 1 minute.
  3. Whisk to combine well.
  4. Add the peanut butter and stir to combine.
  5. Transfer it to your prepared fondue pot and enjoy dipping in things.
  6. If you do not have a fondue pot, you can simply pour the chocolate fondue in a bowl and use large wooden skewers (like you would make grilled kabobs with) to dip with. The chocolate fondue will stay warm and dip-able without a fondue pot for about 40 minutes.


  • You don’t notice the peanut butter in the chocolate when you add just 2 tablespoons. It adds a nice texture and depth of flavor, though. If you want a hint of peanut butter with your chocolate, add the full 4 tablespoons.
  • If you like a semi-sweet fondue, use semi-sweet chocolate chips. If you like a sweeter chocolate fondue, use milk chocolate chips. Good quality chocolate chips make a big difference when it comes to the end product. I like Ghirardelli chips for this recipe.
  • This makes a fairly thin fondue. If you’d like it to be a bit thicker, reduce the cream to 1 and 1/4 cups.
