Orange Chocolate Fondue

One of my favorite places to go for dinner is our local fondue restaurant. I just can’t get enough. Melted cheese, followed by delicious eats, followed by melted chocolate. Is this heaven? No, but it's close.

I decided that making chocolate fondue couldn’t be that hard, and I was right. You can have that delicious melty chocolate right in your living room. It's perfect for the holidays! The most fun part of this dessert treat is finding delicious treats to dip into it, and going to town: Fruit, sponge cake, marshmallows, doughnut holes and more. The possibilities are endless!



To make this fondue extra special for the holidays, I used Fannie May Orange Dark Chocolate Squares. The chocolate is high quality baking chocolate, and is so creamy and delicious. The tangy orange is the perfect complement to the dark chocolate. You have to taste it to believe it! For my dippers, I used strawberries, cake, biscotti and marshmallows. They made for the perfect dippers, and this whole dessert is quick and easy. 


  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate
  • 8 ounces (1 package) Fannie May Orange Chocolate Squares, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier (optional)
  • Marshmallows, fruit, pound cake, biscotti, brownies, or whatever else your heart desires as dippers!

In a small sauce pan, heat the cream until its bubbling at a nice page.

Lower heat to simmer and stir in chocolate, 1/2 cup at a time. Stir rapidly to melt the chocolate completely into the cream.

Take the chocolate sauce off of the heat and stir in the optional Grand Marnier. Serve with your choice of dippers and enjoy!

Serves: 6-8
