Bittersweet Chocolate Fondue

Prep time 2 mins
Cook time 2 mins
Yield 3 cups
Arrange fresh strawberries, cubed pineapple, and pear slices on a serving platter as healthy dippers. For more decadent dippers, serve pretzel rods, large marshmallows, biscotti, or cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies.


  • 1 (11.5-ounce) package double chocolate chips (we tested with Ghirardelli) or 3 (4-ounce) bars bittersweet or dark sweet chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

How to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring once. Let stand 2 minutes. Stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Keep warm in a fondue pot.
