  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, vanilla, and butter. Heat over medium heat until the mixture just simmers. Remove from the heat and stir in the bittersweet and milk chocolates and chocolate liqueur until completely melted and smooth.
  2. Serve over a heat source that will keep the fondue warm, but not hot.

this is a great party dessert! i would recommend to cut the milk/crean in half because it makes it too runny. Large marshmallow, bananas, strawberries and pound cake are good dipping ingredients.


This fondue was tasty but also runny, which most people didn't like. If I make this again, I think I'll cut the milk in half so I can get the thick, creamy consistency that I love in restaurant-style chocolate fondue.


We used Ghirardelli bittersweet and milk chocolate chips rather than bars, as they melt quicker. Ghirardelli melts smoother than Baker's chocolate (which tends to be more grainy) and the taste is richer, so I would opt for Ghirardelli for sure. We skipped the chocolate liquor as we couldn't find it in our grocery store. Nonetheless, everyone loved the smooth, rich taste (served with pound cake bites and fresh fruit). This recipe was the hit of our party! Scrumptious!!!
