Sweet chocolate and heavy cream. That’s it! Just these two ingredients create a chocolaty fondue that is to die for! No need for liqueur or other added ingredients.

What Chocolate to Use for Fondue
For this recipe, we love using milk chocolate chips. They melt easily and taste delicious! However, if you prefer a less sweet flavor, try Baker’s Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate or even dark chocolate. It’s all up to you! And if you love peanut butter, see the recipe card below for details on how to make peanut butter chocolate fondue. So yummy!
Fondue with Heavy Cream
Heavy Whipping Cream is the other key ingredient in this two-ingredient fondue. Using heavy cream allows for a deliciously smooth texture and unbelievable flavor. If the chocolate seems too thick, add a bit more cream to the mixture. You’ll never have lumps or separation with this recipe. It’s deliciously perfect!
