Dark Chocolate Fondue

Dark Chocolate FondueNothing says love like a pot of melted chocolate!!  I’ve never been one to make a huge deal out of Valentines Day, but as my kiddos get older I’m looking for any excuse to get them around the table for more than 10 minutes!  Fondue is just the ticket and this Dark Chocolate Fondue is the golden ticket!!


Dark Chocolate FondueBecause February is Lactose Intolerance Awareness Month, I thought I would share a fondue recipe that uses lactose free dairy products, and chocolate.  Add lots of fresh berries for dipping and this indulgence is downright good for you!!  No guilt here!

If you don’t have a fondue pot, a small crock pot set on the warm setting will work just fine.  We are using dark chocolate, which has no milk in it, and lactose free whole milk. Chop up your chocolate, warm milk or cream to a low boil, pour over chocolate, stir until smooth, lastly stir in corn syrup.  The corn syrup gives the chocolate a nice sheen and it also adds just a smidgen of sweetness.

You can pretty much dip what ever you want in this heavenly pot of goodness!  Berries and pretzels happen to be our favorites, but honestly the skies the limit!


How do you celebrate Valentines Day?  Or are you in the “any day is a good day to let your sweetheart know how much you love them” club?  Next time you feel like loving on your someone special I hope you whip up a pot of melty rich chocolate, you won’t regret it!
