Microwave Chocolate Fondue

The trick to preparing microwave chocolate fondue is to stir frequently and be careful not to overcook the chocolate.

Serves: 4


  • ½ lb. strawberries
  • 7 oz. dark chocolate pieces
  • 6 Tbsp. light cream or half-and-half


  • Wash the strawberries and remove the hulls (the green leaves and “core” on top). Dry with paper towels.
  • Place the chocolate and the cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate and cream on high heat for 1 minute. Stir, and microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir, and cook for 2 more minutes in 15-second intervals, stirring each time, until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Pour the chocolate fondue into a ceramic dessert fondue pot with a candle as the heat source. Serve with the strawberries for dipping. (Use a dipping fork to spear the strawberries and dip them in the chocolate.)
