Mexican Chocolate Fondue

fondue pot for mexican chocolate fonduechocolate fondue pot

This Mexican chocolate fondue is a great romantic dessert and, as with all Mexican food, it's tasty!

Whenever I go to Mexico to escape the cold Canadian winters, I always visit local grocery stores to pick up two things: pure vanilla extractvanilla and Abuelita chocolate.Abuelita chocolate

While this type of chocolate is meant to be dissolved in milk (or water) to make hot chocolate, these pucks of bitter chocolate already include sugar and some cinnamon and are therefore great ingredients for chocolate fondue!

But you don't have to travel to Mexico to purchase Mexican chocolate! You can buy Abuelita Mexican chocolate online here.Abuelita chocolate

P.S. This recipe would be the perfect ending to a Mexican fondue night if you start with this Mexican fiesta cheese fondue.

You can also dip other dessert items like marshmallows, pretzels, pieces of cake, etc.
