This mint chocolate fondue was an excellent dessert fondue. It took about five minutes to make (pretty much any chocolate fondue takes about five minutes to make) and it was delicious. I didn’t even add creme de menthe, so anyone young or old can enjoy it. To be honest, I actually made it with Andes mint chocolate thins leftover from my Christmas stocking!
FYI: I used the Andes green mint parfait thins, not the more chocolatey Andes creme de menthe thins. But hey, you do you.
This would be a great Christmas fondue or a Valentine’s Day fondue. It's a really easy fondue and a real crowd-pleaser, so you don't need a reason to melt it up!
(for a small batch for 2-4 people; you can easily double this recipe for more guests)
Optional: Add some white sugar for more sweetness.
Optional: Add a splash of creme de menthe for a more intense mint flavor.
Optional: Add a splash of mint mocha coffee creamer to add more more and sweetness.
Put the chocolate and cream into a double boiler or a ceramic bowl. You can melt the chocolate and mix the ingredients in the double boiler on the stove. OR You can put the ceramic bowl into a pan of water and heat it on the stove until the water is boiling and the ingredients have melted. Stir until smooth. OR You can heat the bowl in the microwave for one minute, carefully remove it, and stir. Repeat until the ingredients have been mixed and melted to a smooth consistency.
Carefully pour the chocolate from the pot or bowl into your ceramic fondue pot. Light the candle underneath to keep the chocolate warm and soft while you're enjoying your fondue. Serve with an assortment of your favorite dippers; start with some of the suggestions below.
