Dark Chocolate Fondue

Nothing says love like a pot of melted chocolate!

Dark Chocolate FondueI’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.

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!

Dark Chocolate Fondue

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. The corn syrup is added to give the chocolate a pretty sheen and it adds extra sweetness, since this is dark chocolate, not milk chocolate.

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!

  • 1 fondue pot a small crock pot, set on warm works too


  • 1 pound dark chocolate use 70-80% cocoa chocolate pieces
  • 11/2 cups lactose free whole milk
  • 1 tblsp corn syrup
  • dippers see notes for ideas


  •  Chop chocolate into small pieces add to fondue pot.
  • Heat milk to a low bowl, remove from heat and pour over chocolate. Stir until chocolate melts and becomes smooth. At this point you can turn electric fondue pot to low, or if you have a ceramic pot add low flame to allow chocolate to stay warm and smooth.
  •  Add corn syrup and stir. This gives chocolate a nice sheen and smooths it out


Note: Any berry is great for dipping, pretzels, sugar cookies (such as Nilla Wafers), pound cake (we use frozen pound cake cut into cubes). potato chips, apples, bananas, marshmallows.  The skies the limit really. Get creative!
