Chocolate Fondue recipe

Chocolate fondue makes an indulgent treat perfect to share with your Valentine.


Made in minutes, pour this wonderfully luxurious fondue into a pretty heart shaped cup or keep hot in a mini fondue bowl with a burner.

Serves 2

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

2 strips of orange rind pared from a whole orange with a vegetable peeler

Large pinch ground cinnamon

3 tablespoons caster sugar

120ml (4fl oz) or 8 tablespoons of water

150g (5oz) dark chocolate, broken into pieces

2 tablespoons double cream, plus 1 tablespoon to decorate

350g (12oz) mixed strawberries, raspberries and blueberries

1.Add the orange rind, cinnamon, sugar and water to a small saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer for 3-4 minutes until syrupy and leave to cool for 10 minutes or longer for the flavours to develop.

2.Discard the orange rind and reheat the syrup. Take off the heat, add the chocolate and leave until melted. Stir until smooth and mix in 2 tablespoons of cream until glossy. Reheat gently if needed.

3.Arrange the fruit on a plate with fondue skewers or small forks and pour the fondue sauce into a cup or fondue pot set over a burner. You can even use the saucepan you have been cooking with. Decorate with an extra drizzle of cream and swirl with a skewer. Start dipping!


For a minted chocolate fondue, substitute the orange and cinnamon for 2 stems of fresh mint instead of the orange and cinnamon.
