Easy Fondue Recipe
Chocolate Fondue for Dessert Fondue

chocolate for fondue

This easy fondue recipe is easy to make. You can pretty much choose any type of chocolate to make it, but the higher quality chocolate will taste better. You can use semi-sweet chocolate chips or even Aero chocolate bars.

If you don't have triple sec at home, feel free to improvise and replace it with the liqueur of your choice or vanilla if you want an alcohol-free chocolate fondue recipe.
