This Creamy Chocolate Fondue Dip is perfect for Valentine’s Day!
This is a really delicious dessert dip! It’s made up of melted chocolate and homemade whipped cream. You can take any fruit and cut it up into chunks to enjoy with this recipe. This time around I went with strawberries, apples, and pears. Pineapple is also a favorite but sometimes it doesn’t sit well with my stomach. This is a sad truth for me since pineapple is one of my favorite fruits!
Pound cake is a great addition to the fruit kabobs but beware; the pound cake will crumble when dipped into this creamy chocolate fondue.
This fondue is on the creamy side compared to other fondues due to the addition of whipped cream. This makes the dip light and fluffy! It isn’t too rich which basically just means you can eat more of it without feeling like bloated! This is the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert for two, even though the recipe makes enough to feed a large group.
The original recipe uses cool whip but I went ahead and made my own homemade whipped cream with heavy cream, powdered sugar and a little bit of vanilla extract. I think doing this makes the recipe less processed which makes me smile. It also makes me feel a lot better about eating a chocolate dip. Using quality chocolate chips is also a big plus. I sprinkled a few chocolate chips on top of the dip to make it more appealing.
