Bailey's Dark Chocolate Fondue Recipe


Bailey's Dark Chocolate Fondue Recipe

This dessert is known in our house as the single best way to get my son to unload the dishwasher. Rich and delicious, it's so easy that you can have dessert on the table in just minutes.  Leave the Baileys out if you have small kids, or stir a little into an adults only portion.  The leftovers make great truffles, or just re-heat the next day!


1/3 cup whipping cream
8 oz bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
3 Tbsp Bailey's Irish cream
Various fruits for dipping, or pretzels

  Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, stirring until smooth.  Add whipping cream,  Bailey's Irish Cream, and stir.  Continue stirring until smooth and warm

  Serve with sliced strawberries, pineapple, apples, bananas, and pretzels. Each family member gets a fork to dip the fruit into the warm chocolate.

(okay, skip the Irish cream if you have little kids, but Kevin is 16 so we okayed it)

If you have leftovers (which we did), you can put it in the fridge to re-heat later. To re-heat, put in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds at a time, stirring and heating until until melted and warm.Or, you could spoon it out in teaspoon sized servings and roll them into balls, then coat in unsweetened cocoa for fast truffles!
