How to Make Chocolate Fondue

This fondue is super easy and all of five ingredients (who counts salt). The chocolate and cream serve as the base with a pinch salt, some cinnamon, a good dose of vanilla, and a splash of liqueur.

I used Kahlua for a hint of coffee flavor, but you can use whatever your heart desires. Grand Marnier, Amaretto, Frangelico, Baileys, dark rum or brandy are solid choices. Want to skip the booze? Flavored extracts are a great substitute.

Also, variations of spice include espresso powder, nutmeg, allspice, and cardamom depending on what you like.

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pound semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon liqueur of choice (I used Kahlua)
  • Dipping suggestions: assorted fruit, cubed pound cake, toasted marshmallows, graham crackers and pretzels


  • In a medium saucepan, combine the cream, vanilla, salt and cinnamon. Heat over medium heat until the mixture just barely simmers.
  • Turn heat to low and stir in the chopped chocolate. Continue to stir until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in liqueur.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into a fondue pot and light the heating source underneath. Keep the flame low so the fondue stays smooth but doesn’t burn.
  • Arrange assorted sweets, fruits and pretzels around the fondue. Have fondue skewers and long toothpicks ready. Enjoy!

  1. I haven’t had chocolate fondue for ages, so thank you for the reminder about this decadent and easy dessert! I’ve never added liqueur into my chocolate fondue though which is odd because I love adding it into my hot chocolate. With kahlua or Irish cream or basically any other – that’s so elevated to the next level. Delish!

    1. Thanks Ben! Bailey’s and Kahlua are my favorite liqueurs and love adding them to desserts. I posted this fondue on Valentine’s Day but it’s a year-round dessert in my book! 🙂
