Dark chocolate and orange fondue

    15 min

    A rich, creamy chocolate and orange fondue that's a doddle to make. Set it down in the middle of the table with a selection of goodies, such as chunks of brownies, whole strawberries or marshmallows, and dip away!

    Fantastic fondue. I served it at my book club meeting with many different types of fruit and some shortbread. I used the darkest chocolate I could find (Lindt 85% cocoa). The combination of the sweet fruit and the orange/bitter of the dark chocolate was outstanding. For me, milk chocolate would have ruined this recipe. I wouldn't change a thing. As an added benefit, the darker the chocolate, the better it is for you health-wise.  -  25 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was good. It was not nearly sweet enough for my sweet tooth, which may stem from the fact that I for once had high-quality dark chocolate on hand and used it. I ended up adding quite a bit of corn syrup. Edit: tried it again using semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the fancy stuff. Worked very well and was finally sweet enough for me.  -  08 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was excellent. It was a bit more liquid than I would like but the taste was phenomenal.  -  30 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
