Chocolate Orange Fondue Recipe

For many years, we’ve celebrated New Year’s Eve with a fondue dinner, and my chocolate version is one of the dessert courses. We like using fresh fruit and cubed cake for dipping.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar or light corn syrup
  • 18 ounces 70% cacao dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur
  • Assorted fresh fruit and cubed pound cake


  • 1. In a large saucepan, stir together cream and sugar over medium-low heat until hot but not boiling; add chocolate, stirring constantly until smooth and heated through (do not boil). Remove from heat, stir in orange liqueur.
  • 2. Transfer to a heated fondue pot; keep fondue warm. Serve with fruit and cake for dipping. Yield: 4 cups.

Recipe Note

Double Boiler Method: In top of a double boiler or a metal bowl over barely simmering water, heat the chocolate, cream and sugar; stir until smooth. Remove from heat, stir in orange liqueur.
