Chocolate Peppermint Dessert Fondue

We enjoy fondue occasionally, usually with a broth that we use to cook small pieces of beef or chicken, along with bite sized vegetables. A cheese fondue is tasty too, but very high calorie and loaded with fat, so we can’t have that very often.

Only once or twice have we made a dessert fondue, and then it was a boxed chocolate fondue from the supermarket.

However, I just found the recipe booklet that came with our Jubilee electric fondue, and it has some dessert fondue recipes. There’s no date on the booklet, but I think we bought the fondue at least 20 years ago.

This recipe looks easy, and would give you a way to use up any After Eight mints that are hanging around after Christmas.

Dessert Fondue Dippers

The booklet suggests 8-12 pieces per person, and here are some of the dippers they recommend:

  • cherries
  • strawberries
  • mandarin oranges
  • apple slices*
  • banana chunks*
  • seedless grapes
  • angel food cake
  • marshmallows
  • soft cookies
  • pretzels

*dip in lemon juice mixed with a little water, to prevent the fruit from browning.

Chocolate Peppermint Fondue

  • 1/2 pound creamy, thin mints (After Eights would be good)
  • 3 tbsp cream

Combine mints and cream in electric fondue post.

Stir and melt over low heat until melted. Keep on low heat while serving.
