Tips and Notes on this Chocolate Fondue Recipe

Can I use chocolate chips to make fondue?

Many people think that you can just melt chocolate chips and use them but that isn’t correct. Chocolate chips cannot actually be used in fondue so keep that in mind. (Save them for homemade cookies instead!)

If you dip your food item into the fondue and pull it out and wait about 15 seconds or so, you might be able to put it back in and get a double coat of chocolate! (It’s worth a shot!)

What can I use to make chocolate fondue?

You’ll want to use a good quality chocolate to give it that rich flavor and taste. If you can use milk chocolate, that would be perfect for making it kid-friendly as well.

When you use your fondue pot, this recipe comes together in just seconds! It’s the perfect heat and width to cook it perfectly every single time.

If you don’t own your very own chocolate fondue set, now is the time to get one. They’re a great investment and you’ll use it literally all the time.

You can even upgrade to a chocolate fountain machine that looks really cool and is certain to be quite the focal point as everyone stares at the giant chocolate fondue mounting. Make certain to have chocolate fondue dippers handy!
