Homemade Chocolate Fondue

My mom didn't hit the stove too often while my sister and I were growing up, but fondue was her forte. She always wanted to make sure we ate enough fresh fruits and vegetables, and fondue was her way of luring us to a fruit salad. She would spend hours washing berries and cutting up all sorts of exotic fruits along with apples, pears and bananas.


  • Prep Time : 5 min min
  • Ready Time : 5 min


4 servings


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup liquid non-dairy creamer
  • For dipping (choose any of the following)
  • Fresh fruit
  • Dried fruit
  • Marshmallows
  • Brownies
  • Soft chewy cookies



  1. Sift cocoa through a fine mesh sieve.
  2. In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine cocoa, sugar, margarine and non-dairy creamer, stirring continuously for 4 minutes or until heated through.
  3. Pour cocoa mixture into a fondue pot or bowl for dipping.
  4. Surround with selected dipping treats and serve with toothpicks.

    HELP I was going to make this for Passover and need it to be parve. What can I substitute for the margarine and how much.
    Thanks so much !

    • You can use margarine on Passover, not sure what else would work.

      • You can sub soy milk or almond milk, on Passover in place of the non dairy creamer and both butter or margarine work in this recipe. You can even use a good quality fruity olive oil (I love the taste!!!) or a neutral flavored nut oil like walnut in place of the butter or margarine — add it slowly until desired consistency is reached — and just know that you may have to adjust and add more sugar. And one last substitution option… AVOCADO in place of the margarine or butter, will make your fondue nice and creamy!!!!

    can I make this the day before and then reheat it?
    My family loved it last time

    • YAY! I’m so happy — yes no problem pre-make and reheat but make sure to do so in a heavy bottomed pot on a low flame stirring the entire time to make sure it doesn’t burn. Enjoy!

    Hi Jamie,
    I don’t make desserts often, but I will be this week and this one sounds great.
    Is it possible to substitute stevia for sugar? As well as
    Earth Balance instead of margarine? If so how much?
