Legend has it that the Tobler company invented fondue in the 1960s with this recipe. Try the one that started it all.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 (3 1/3 ounce) Toblerone chocolate bars, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cognac or 1 tablespoon Frangelico


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer.
  2. Remove from heat and add chopped chocolate.
  3. Let stand long enough for the chocolate to begin to melt, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the liqueur and whisk until smooth.
  5. Transfer mixture to a ceramic fondue pot or chafing dish and keep warm.
  6. Serve with dipping ingredients such as pound cake, angel food cake, strawberries, sliced peaches, or bananas.

Hi hudeli, I have made this many times and every time it's better than the time before! I first made this 20 years ago, for my daughter's 16th birthday party. The cognac was negligible - you couldn't even taste it! Regardless it was wonderful - nice & creamy with that great nutty flavor. Thanks for posting, Diane :=)
