Chocolate Fondue for Two

If you’re thinking about ending your Valentine meal with anything other than chocolate, think again. Chocolate is the quintessential Valentine’s Day dessert, and this easy and delicious Chocolate Fondue for Two is the answer. It stirs together in minutes, can be made ahead, served quite elegantly with a glass of champagne, and you can get as creative as you like with the dippers. Nothing says I love you like this sinfully delicious dessert.
Chocolate Fondue for Two

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1 14-oz. can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 tablespoons Kahlúa
¼ teaspoon espresso powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In heavy saucepan, over medium heat, melt chocolate chips and butter with sweetened condensed milk; stir in espresso powder. Cook and stir constantly until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and Kahlúa.
Serve warm in your favorite fondue pot. Store leftovers, covered, in refrigerator.
Suggested Dippers:
Pound cake cubes, Amaretto Cherries, orange sections, melons balls, pineapple chunks, strawberries, banana slices, apple wedges, Melissa’s Red Muscato or interestingly shaped Sweet Sapphire Grapes, pear slices, and Plush Puffs marshmallows.

Oh Pattie! I would go straight for the marshmallows. Confession: I've never had a handmade or "hand-crafted" marshmallow - only Kraft (and I love those so I KNOW I'd love a handmade one!)
I made a ganache years ago using a recipe very similar to this and used it as a glaze for a cake; served it to my Mom and husband, and we all loved it. Your addition of espresso powder and Kahlua would take it over the top!

You do paint a pretty picture! It’s been a long time since I had fondue. There’s a place in Kansas City called The Melting Pot. That’s where I last had it, and I ate to the point of almost popping! And now here we are again...you tempting me to gorge! For shame!!!🙃

This is a great idea! We are both busy today with errands and meetings and won’t be able to have dinner together. I’m going to put a tray of chocolate and goodies together, though, and we can at least enjoy a lovely dessert. Thanks for saving our day!!

You and I have been thinking along the same lines. I put together a dessert board and just winged it and made a chocolate dip. Thank you for the recipe and for sharing this at Celebrate Your Story.
