Chocolate Mint Fondue



My kids wanted a snack of the chocolate persuasion yesterday, so this was one way of combining chocolate with some healthy apples. However, the fondue was so good we started looking for more food items we could dip into this melty goodness.

Before you knew it strawberries and bananas were being dunked and then we moved onto pound cake, marshmallows and graham crackers. It was all delicious. And filling. And probably fattening, but nothing a few hours at the vineyard won't burn off.

Anyway, if you are looking to satisfy a chocolate urge, this will do nicely. Using sweetened condensed milk as the base made it easier to melt as some chocolate easily seizes and creates hardened bits in the fondue. It was perfect!


Combine a can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 cup chocolate chips and 10 chopped peppermint patties.


Cook over low heat until melted.


Serve with apple slices, strawberries, bananas, pound cake...whatever you like!

  12. Wow mint with apples. I would have never thought of that but it does sound nice and refreshing in place of caramel for a change!
