Chocolate Fondue recipe

Updated on September 16, 2014

Chocolate Merlot Fondue Recipe

One of my favorite winter desserts is Chocolate fondue and I have been using my grandmother recipe for years. In my opinion it is simply the best chocolate fondue. In the 70's fondue was a very popular party treat and every party had its fondue pot grooving and today this delicious trent is coming back. Chocolate Fountains, Chocolate parties and Fondue restaurants are popping out everywhere, but sadly the trent has not yet picked up in the American household although this treat is so simple to make and so delicious to indulge! I have tried his recipe in many occasions, for a romantic fondue night with my husband as well as in fun gatherings with friends and until now I have only received compliments. Hope you get a chance to try this one out. You will be amazed how simple and fast this recipe can be and how creative you can get with the dippables.

Hope you enjoy this great recipe and treat your family to a delicious Fondue Treat!

      I adore chocolate fondue. I'm not a coffee lover, so would have to skip that part of your recipe, the rest sounds wonderful though. :)

      I would ensure you have rights to use all the wonderful pictures you have selected here. I didn't see any photo credits anywhere. To learn more on image use check out:

      Also, squidoo has a recipe module that would allow readers to put the recipe in a printer friendly format. I know I enjoy that feature.

      You've got a great desert lens here. Thanks for sharing.
