Perfect Chocolate Fondue
Nostalgia Chocolate Fondue Pot
10 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (chocolate chips are best)
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (see note for other variations)
Lots of dipping options (strawberries, bananas, cookies, small rice krispie squares, fruit, etc.)
In the Nostalgia fondue pot, combine the chocolate, milk and cream and heat on low, stirring often, until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Don't let it come to a boil; keep it on low heat.
Once melted, stir in the vanilla extract. If needed, stir in heavy cream or milk a tablespoon at a time to adjust for a thinner consistency. Pour the mixture into a fondue pot or small slow cooker to keep warm while serving.
Serve with dippers of your choice. We love: marshmallows, vanilla cookies, strawberries, rice krispie treats cut in little squares, bananas. Don't forget to use the included fondue sticks to help dip!
Any extra chocolate leftovers will keep well in the refrigerator - just reheat on low to have yourself another chocolate fondue experience.
Chocolate adjustments: Try different variations of chocolate - white chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, etc!
Extract: also, you can vary the flavor with the extract. We usually stick with vanilla but you could try adding orange extract or peppermint for a twist on the chocolate fondue.
