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
- 2–4 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.
- In a medium sauce pan, over medium heat, heat the cream until you just start to see steam coming off the top.
- Remove from the heat and add the chocolate all at once. Let the mixture rest for 1 minute.
- Whisk to combine well.
- Add the peanut butter and stir to combine.
- Transfer it to your prepared fondue pot and enjoy dipping in things.
- 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.
