Double dippers rejoice! With individual fondue bowls, you can dunk every last bite of fruit or cake in warm, rich chocolate – without eliciting sideways glances from your tablemates. Individual chocolate fondue (French for “melted”) does not require a special fondue pot (with heat source below), long forked spears, or even a special occasion. (Though it’s a fun and easy Valentine’s Day dessert.) The fondue stays warm enough if you serve right away. Nor does it require a double boiler or any real skill to make: Heat cream & milk, add chocolate, whisk, dip. Then dip again! I think this is perfectly acceptable finger food, but you could also supply dessert forks or toothpicks for dipping.

Makes 4 small servings (can be doubled)
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- ¼ cup milk (any kind – even skim will work)
- 1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
- Strawberries, sliced bananas, pound cake cubes or pretzels for dipping
In a small saucepan, heat cream and milk just to a simmer and then turn off heat. Add chocolate chips and begin slowly whisking until the chocolate melts and becomes fully incorporated with the cream/milk. Pour into small bowls or ramekins and serve immediately with fruit or dippers of choice.
PS – It’s also delicious as an ice cream topping!
This looks great Susan! I will make it for my daughter this weekend!
Hope she likes it 🙂 (Doesn’t get much easier than this!)
Yum… looks like a good option for my gourmet dessert??? What do you think, Sue?
Sure! Though for a large group, I think I’d whip out the fondue pot. Got one? Then set out with all kinds of things to dip.
