Here we are again, the season of LOVE is upon us. Now you all know that the best way for someone to know that you truly care about them is to feed them. So today, we are doing an easy creamy chocolate fondue. 

I put my chocolate in a double boiler, where the pan that has the chocolate in it, sits in the pan that has water in it. This helps the chocolate to melt more evenly and helps to keep the chocolate from scorching.

 

Why Should I use a Double Boiler to Melt the Chocolate in Easy Creamy Chocolate Fondue?

  • A double boiler gives you the best control over the heat.
  • The steam of the simmering water gently melts the chocolate so that it doesn’t burn.

How Do I Make Easy Creamy Chocolate Fondue?

Chocolate Fondue:

  • In a double boiler or sauce pan, melt the chocolate chips over low heat, stirring frequently.
  • When the chocolate is melted whisk the whipping cream into the melted chocolate.
  • Place the fondue into a crock pot or a bowl, put the crock pot on the lowest setting to allow it to keep slightly warm. If your crock pot is too hot just place the fondue into a nice bowl and allow your guest to dip out of the bowl.
  • It will stay soft for 30-40 minutes.
  • If you do not have sticks for fondue, put some tooth picks out and let your guests use the tooth picks to dip their choice of food dippers into the fondue.
