Recipe Notes

  • If there are still lumps of chocolate that remain after cooking, just stir until they melt.
  • The chocolate mixture will be extremely hot, so be careful when eating. It's a good idea to let it cool a bit so that it's thicker and easier to dip into.

Recipe FAQs

If the fondue is too thick, you can just add in some more heavy cream or a little bit of milk and stir. Add a little at a time so you don't overdo it.

Can you reheat fondue?

Yes, you can store and reheat fondue. Once the chocolate is melted, you can just reheat it in the microwave when you're ready to enjoy it again.
