The Melting Pot Dark Chocolate Raspberry Fondue




Chocolate Fondue Cooking Tips

  • The easiest way to cook fondue at home is to start it on the stove using a Double Boiler and then serve it in a warm Fondue Pot.
  • Keep dessert fondues warm at a low temperature – about 120 degrees.
  • Great dippers for chocolate fondue include fresh fruit like strawberries and bananas, Rice Krispies Treats®, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies.
  • The strong, bitter flavor of dark chocolate fondue provides a unique contrast when paired with sweet dippers such as pineapple and marshmallows. If your chocolate fondue comes out too bitter, stir in a little confectioners’ sugar until it reaches the desired level of sweetness.
  • Milk chocolate melts fairly evenly and its milder taste makes it a great base for mixing with sweet liquors and other additives, such as peanut butter or marshmallow creme. Of course, milk chocolate is also just as delicious in its purest form – with nothing added!
  • White chocolate has the same consistency as milk chocolate, but has a less intense flavor, which allows white chocolate fondue to take on more of the flavors of liqueurs, nuts, or any other mix-ins.

Tips for Selecting a Fondue Pot:

  • A ceramic or earthenware fondue pot is usually preferred for making cheese and chocolate fondues at home but a pot made of stainless steel is the ideal choice for preparing entree fondues.
  • It’s best to choose a metal pot that comes with a ceramic insert for preparing cheese and chocolate fondues so that you can use the same pot for entree, cheese and chocolate fondues.
  • Ceramic pots should be heated with a low flame. Fondue sets usually come with a burning apparatus, but, in a pinch, a tea light or small candle will usually do the trick.
  • There are two types of metal fondue pots: electric or the old-fashioned open-flame variety. Electric pots allow you to easily control temperature. Today’s open-flame pots have new types of fuels, such as gels, that are easy to use as well
