Chocolate Fondue Recipe

We had friends over for dinner at our new house in Austin last Friday night (it's part of my "Build Community Crusade"). Our guests requested gluten- and cheese-free options, so I cooked:

For dessert, I made chocolate fondue with strawberries and pineapples. I actually botched the fondue because I didn't follow my own recipe, but I wanted to write this post anyway. I've made this recipe in this past, and it's delicious. Plus, I discovered my new favorite chocolate chips at Central Market: Guittard Semi-Sweet. I may or may not have snacked on several handfuls before making the fondue.

I found this recipe on the box of my fondue pot, which has traveled with me from house to house, city to city, for the past 11 years. I don't make fondue all that often, but when I do, I'm sure glad to have my trusty fondue pot.


  • 1/4 c milk
  • 6 oz. butterscotch chips
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 t vanilla


  • Combine milk and chips in fondue bowl.
  • Set temperature to low.
  • Stir until chips are melted.
  • Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Serve with pieces of angel food, sponge, or pound cake, fresh fruit, pretzels, etc.
