Course Dessert, Snack


  • Fruit (citrus, banana, berries, melon, etc.)
  • Sweet snacks (cookies, brownie bites, sliced cake, graham crackers, marshmallows, etc.)
  • Savory snacks (pretzels, popcorn, nuts, etc.)
  • Chocolate bar(s) or chocolate chips (look for fairly traded chocolate and choose dark chocolate for extra nutrition)


  • Prep accompaniments. Choose an assortment of fruits, snacks, and desserts to go alongside your chocolate fondue bowl. (For the pictured board, I made brownie bites and a cardamom cake, but you could simply buy your sweets!)
  • Arrange accompaniments on your board/tray/platter. Get creative!
  • Melt chocolate. Break chocolate bar into smaller pieces. You can melt in a double boiler or the microwave. If using the microwave be sure to stop and stir every 20-30 seconds. Use a spatula to transfer the chocolate to your desired bowl or bowls.
  • Enjoy! Note, if chocolate hardens or you want to save some for later, simply reheat it in the microwave (assuming it's in a microwave safe bowl of course!)


How much chocolate should I use?
This is up to you! If you are not sure, try with a smaller amount and melt more as needed. On the flip side, if you melt too much, you can simply save the leftovers and reheat when desired!
