Chocolate Fondue

Cuisinart original

Everything goes well when dipped in chocolate pretzels, cake, brownies or fruit. You can even drizzle over ice cream if there is any left over.




  • ¾ cup whole or reduced fat milk
  • 1¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1½ pounds bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips (the extra cocoa butter in chips produces a smoother fondue)
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt

  2. Reduce heat to Setting 3. Serve with biscotti, fresh or dried fruit, marshmallows, graham crackers, pretzels, angel food cake, brownies, etc.
