Dark Chocolate Mocha Fondue for Two!

Dark Chocolate Mocha Fondue for Two! #FondueWeek #Recipe #Chocolate #ValentinesDay

Day 3 of Fondue Week and today I’m sharing with you a simple fondue recipe that you can make for just two people. Valentine’s Day is next week, so naturally this dessert is perfect for two! My friends at Scharffen Berger Chocolate sent me a gorgeous box of chocolates (just like the kind you can win right now… so head on over to the giveaway after you done reading this post). This recipe is made with just one 3oz. Dark Chocolate Mocha bar. Hence the name Dark Chocolate Mocha Fondue for Two! The mocha flavoring comes from finely ground Sumatran coffee. You can taste the texture and real coffee in every bite. Of course I stepped it up a notch and added a little Kaluha for a grown-up spin on my fondue. If you don’t have the Dark Chocolate Mocha Bar you could always use the highest quality dark chocolate and a tablespoon of espresso to the mix and then of course add Kaluha if desired.

Oh, and I also forgot to memtion that today is National Chocolate Fondue day. Tonight, Christine and I will be speaking with Chef Shane from The Melting Pot. If you want to hear some of the secrets to making great fondue we’d love if you watched us live on our Google+ channels. We will tweet out the link around 9pm tonight.

Once again I’m brining you a two for one recipe. You know… two holidays/events equal one recipe. Remember on Sunday, I brought you a fondue recipe and one that worked well for Super Bowl i.e., Buffalo Chicken Fondue.  I feel like I need to balance out the sweet and savory and mix it up as an every other day kind of recipe week.

I love not only dipping strawberries in fondue but raspberries. To me there is something about chocolate and raspberries together. It is pure bliss. Oh and if you have plump blueberries those will work too. This is what I like to call my take on “healthy” fondue. Dark Chocolate is good for you. Fruit is good for you. Both items are good for you so that means we are in the clear (minus the heavy cream and butter but shhhh it’s a special occassion. We can all splurge). Oh, so maybe this isn’t “really” healthy, but in my mind it is. And let’s all keep pretending in front of my face that it is healthy, please.

    What a great idea to have Fondue Week right before Valentine’s Day. I was thinking of blogging a fondue recipe this week since I still have that boat load of chocolate to use up. Better get moving on that so I can join the link up. (and I really hope I win that beautiful fondue pot.)

    Dark chocolate is my favorite & I also think it goes well with raspberry. My husband enjoys milk chocolate, but he’ll eat anything I give him, LOL. I’m for sure entering the giveaway! Thanks Katie for bringing us back to romantic fondue nights with this Dark Chocolate Mocha Fondue for two recipe!
