Who doesn’t love the Melting Pot? I am going to show you a CopyKat recipe for the Melting Pot’s Chocolate Fondue. If you have never been to a Melting Pot they are a fun and very romantic place to go. All food is served up Fondue style. I have brought you the Melting Pot Cheddar Fondue so now it is time for some chocolate.
You might be wondering what exactly chocolate fondue is like. If you have ever experienced a chocolate fountain, they are very popular at weddings, and other parties, I believe it may have gotten its start from chocolate fondue. If there is one restaurant that knows chocolate fondue that would be the Melting Pot restaurant. This fondue is made from milk chocolate, a bit of heavy cream, and there is a little bit of crunchy peanut butter in this fondue as well.
This recipe is pretty flexible, I am making this with a darker chocolate, but if you like milk chocolate, you should use milk chocolate. This recipe also contains peanut butter so it may remind you of a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. For items to dip, you can use your imagination. In the restaurant they serve up strawberries, cheesecake, marshmallows, bananas, and so much more. Feel free to dip whatever you may like into this fondue.
Now, if you don’t have a fondue pot, you can use a double boiler. If you are going to use a homemade double boiler make sure the pot or bowl you use to melt the chocolate in is very dry. Any water in your melted chocolate may make your chocolate seize up.
